I had to put a Jamfile.v2 to "connect" my sandbox boost to the "main"
boost. My directory structure is:

        Jamfile.v2 //main Jamfile.v2
            Jamfile.v2 //connecting Jamfile.v2

The contents of connecting Jamfile.v2 is:

   project boost
     : requirements
     : usage-requirements

but I should change that since I'm no longer using torjo's rangelib.
Anyway, it worked for me now. However, I also remember making some
changes to boostdoc which allowed building docs in a:


directory instead of in the:


directory. The changes were described by Joao in post with headers:
