Aha! Great news! Now that you've managed to have bjam to find your build
system, this one looks easy...

Boost.Build v2 from CVS is still a bit of a moving target, requiring
that you recompile bjam at times. Right now the latest precompiled
version of bjam is v 3.1.11, which should work fine with the build
system from Boost 1.33.

... double-checking ... ok!

You can either edit your boost-build.jam or BOOST_BUILD_PATH to point at
Boost 1.33 or recompile bjam. You'll find instructions for the latter at
<>, hopefully it can be as simple as

(for the record, there's also a build.bat for windows; the link above
contains a list of additional toolsets you may use with each script)

A fresh version of bjam will emerge in bin.<platform> (for me it reads
bin.linuxx86). Copy the newly built bjam over the previous version and
you should be all set.

I think you are ;-)
