Yes, tutorial.xml for example. However, when bjam runs xsltproc it has
a --path option that includes the directory where the generated xml files
are (from "bjam -d2" output on trunk in the libs/signals2/doc directory):

"xsltproc" --stringparam boost.defaults "Boost" --stringparam
boost.root "../../../.." --path "../../../bin.v2/libs/signals2/doc/gcc-4.3.2/debug" --xinclude -o "../../../bin.v2/libs/signals2/doc/gcc-4.3.2/debug/signals.docbook" "/home/fhess/svn/boost_trunk/tools/boostbook/xsl/docbook.xsl" "signals.xml"
