Subject: [boost] [btree] build advice needed

Dear Beman & others,

At the risk of appearing ignorant and being told the RTM, can someone
please help me to build btree? I am attempting to do this on a
smallish ARM Linux box where building the whole of Boost is impractical
(but which should otherwise be very similar to an x86 Linux system).
So far:

# apt-get install g++ (etc)
# apt-get install boost-build
# apt-get install bjam
# apt-get install git

$ git clone git:// btree
$ cd btree/libs/btree/build
$ bjam
error: Could not find parent for project at '.'
error: Did not find Jamfile or project-root.jam in any parent directory.

As it says, there is no project-root.jam or Jamfile in any parent; this
makes me think that perhaps it is expecting this to be part of a larger
Boost tree. Or, maybe I just don't know the right incantations.
What's the easiest way to go about this? If I do need to get other
Boost source code, if there some git magic that will do it for me?

Thanks, Phil.
