I'm finding the build instructions on the wiki are not working.

    You must edit the file boost-build.jam in cppgui root directory, or
some of its parents, so that bjam can find
    boost-build ../boost_1_39_0/tools/build/v2 ;

First, I am unable to find a file named boost-build.jam in any of the
cppgui files.
Secondly, I am unable to determine which directory is considered cppgui
root as there is a folder 'trunk' which contains docs, etc, and then
there is the projects folder which contains a lot of stuff.

Also, with this instruction:

    My CppGui <> root
directory contains the Jamfile.v2 with the following content:
    use-project boost : ../boost_1_39_0 ;

Which directory is the root directory, and there is no Jamfile.v2 in
anything but the projects sub folders.
