I realized after I posted my message that the Boost snadbox has a
Jamfile but no Jamfile.v2.
I do not know jamfile syntax. How does this Jamfile.v2 just above
connect to the Jamfile.v2 in the boost root ? I will take it for granted
it does and use it without the torjo lines, and hopefully that will work.
