I have checked out the sources from the svn sandbox, but I can't seem
to turn the units.qbk into something more readable. I tried the
"obvious": run bjam in the docs directory, but that issues the
complaint below. I added 'using boostbook;' to the user-config.jam in
the top-level source directory, to no avail. I fear that I'm in a
maze of twisty tools, all alike.

a) is there an easy way to build the documentation or
b) could some kind soul who has found their way through the maze of
bbv2, boostbook, xsltproc, etc. do the rest of us a favor and put the
html docs up on the web somewhere.
