Thanks for the info - the instructions on manual configuration in the
Boost.Book documentation appear to be incorrect. Reinstalling from
scratch and using the auto-configure script appears to have solved
the problem. This toolchain is really brittle, though - in the
process of getting it to work, I must have run into a half-dozen
different and equally inscrutable errors... Also, while I'm
grousing...why, when ./configure builds bjam does it end up in tools/
jam/src/bin.XXX? It makes zero sense to have binaries showing up in
source directories AFAICS... If we want consistent documentation, it
just can't be this difficult to get it to work. It almost makes Word
(TM) look appealing. Almost.

Crabby documenter,
