there is a guide on how to set up the build system:

there is none on how to write documentation, this is how I got started:

 - try if you can successfully bjam inside libs/intrusive/doc/
 - copy intrusive/doc/Jamfile.v2 and intrusive/doc/intrusive.qbk to your
library dir (must be inside the boost tree!)
 - change anything that looks "intrusive" in the jamfile to your library
 - open the .qbk file and delete all sections except the one
containing "xinclude autodoc.xml"
 - bjam

you should get a html-documentation built that contains the typical boost
reference documentation for your library.
