It's a build from yesterday's CVS state :-) I haven't updated it to
contain the changes to bjam I've done today.

I tried running "bjam --v2" in the docs directory and I don't get the
above error. This is because I do set up all the tools possible, msvc,
cw, python, xsltproc, boostbook, doxygen, and quickbook, with the
attached user-config.jam.

My guess is that since Arkadiy did not have a user-config.jam, and hence
did not set up the boostbook tools, it defaulted to trying to build
them. But since a C++ compiler was not available it fails even that.
