Would you please file a Trac issue requesting that this be clarified?

The answer is that you can build Boost in 3 ways:

        bjam <properties> <no-target>
        bjam <properties> stage
        bjam <properties> install

The first builds the libraries but does not place them into a single directory.
The second builds the libraries and places them into a single 'lib' directory.
The third builds everything and installs both libraries and headers.
