Subject: [boost] Building stage by default, pt. 2

previously, we discussed that building the 'stage' target
by default would be a good idea -- since some users forget
that and don't have an easy way to get at built libraries.
I've now implemented the change, taking into account the comments
in that thread. In particular:
- the message now uses absolute paths
- the location of headers is explicitly specified
Here's an example of the message that is output if you do "./bjam"
in Boost root:
Building C++ Boost.
After the build, the headers will be located at
The libraries will be located at
Use 'bjam install --prefix=<path>' if you wish to install headers and
libraries to a different location and remove the source tree.
I was considering outputting a 'summary' at the end of the build, as opposed
at the beginning, but that would require some Boost.Jam changes and therefore
cannot be accomplished at this point of release cycle.
Anybody wishes to comment on the wording before this gets merged to release
