OK. Thanks John. Apparently I've misunderstood how bjam works.
I somehow thought that, even when a Jamfile.v2 was invoked from
a higher level directory, it behaved the same as when it was
invoked from the Jamfile.v2 directory. I guess you expected
$(BOOST_ROOT)/libs/type_traits/doc/Jamfile.v2 to be called from
maybe $(BOOST_ROOT)/Jamfile.v2 and in that way, the boostbook.css
file would be found. Hm..., but the index.html file created has:

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="boostbook.css" type="text/css">

so I'm still a little confused about how it can work since the
above href seems to require that there be a boostbook.css in the
same directory as the generated index.html file.
