You can apply the patch file with the patch(1) tool. First of all,
undo all the changes you did to the original file; it needs to be
exactly the same as was before or otherwise applying the patch will
fail. If unsure, just re-extract the release tarball.

Then, from the top directory of your source tree (the one that
contains project-root.jam), do:

patch -p0 < patch-ae

The -p0 flag tells patch to strip 0 path components (that is, none)
from the patch's file path. See the manual page for more details.

Hope this helps,

PS: Oh, you might want to check and install
Boost from pkgsrc on your OS X installation. These problems are
already solved there ;-)
