MPI docs build OK for me, here's what my user-config.jam looks like in case
it helps:

using xsltproc
    : "C:/download/open/xml/bin/xsltproc-win32/xsltproc.exe"

using boostbook
    : "C:/download/open/xml/docbook-xsl-snapshot"
    : "C:/download/open/xml/docbook-xml"

using fop : #C:/download/open/xml/fop-0.93/fop.bat
           : C:/PROGRA~1/Java/j2re1.4.2_12

using quickbook : "C:/download/open/xml/bin/quickbook.exe" ;

using doxygen : "C:/Program Files/doxygen/bin/doxygen.exe" ;

I tried building the current SVN/sandbox docs for Boost.Units but get the
following error:

warning: failed to load external entity "Reference"
cannot parse Reference

 "C:/download/open/xml/bin/xsltproc-win32/xsltproc.exe" --stringparam
gen.reftitle ""Units Reference"" --xinclude -o

Not sure what "Reference" is?

HTH, John.
