For the thread lib this is:

This link is available after the docs have been built. No stub available.

While trying to update this piece of the doc I found the following:

1) The getting started guide uses " --toolset= " while the bbv2 manual
states " toolset= ". Obviously both versions work. Which one should go
into the documentation?

2) The Boost.Build ref link from the windows.html getting started points
to tools/build/v2. This might be fine when viewed over a web server but
opens a directory when viewed from the filesystem. I suggest correcting
this link to use the index.html file.

3) The only place I have found where toolset names are explicitely named
is in the getting started guide. I intend to link to
/more/getting_started/windows.html#identify-your-toolset. Questions are
if this is a stable link and how this will work in a pdf scenario?

4) I tried to build the getting_started doc on my local machine. But no
luck. What do I need beyond using docutils ; in my user-config.jam?
