Another possibility---the one I use---is to put a file called
"boost-build.jam" at the top of your directory tree (containing anything
that needs to be bjammed) containing a single line:

boost-build vendor/boost/tools/build/v2 ;

(Replace "vendor/boost/tools/build/v2" by the appropriate path for your
boost installation)
