Let me try to explain better.

1) Links from Doxygen to Doxygen:
If I build the Doxygen documentation standalone using doxygen
directly, I have hyperlinks for funcitons, macros, etc -- that's good
:) However, if I build the Doxygen documentation from the jamfile.jam
in a way that it generates a .xml file that I can included using
`[include ...]` into by QuickBook documentation, all the usual Doxygen
hyperlinks disappear.

2) Links from Doxygen to QuickBook:
I would also like from within Doxygen to link to a QuickBook `[section
...]` or similar (so using the QuickBook identifiers).

So I manually used HTML commands `<a>...</a>` to link pages within
Doxygen. This works but I was wondering if there was a better way
which uses the identifiers instead of the actual HTML page URLs.

OK, I will try this -- this uses the QuickBook and code identifiers as
in `boost_random.reference.concepts.random_distribution` and
`boost::lagged_fibonacci607` so it should be what I was looking for.
