I retrieved the bitfield library from the vault, which is the link given
on the review schedule page at .

After getting bitfield from the vault as a zip file, I expanded it into
its own directory beneath the main sandbox directory, went to its
libs/integer/doc directory and ran:

bjam --boost=path/to/boost toolset=msvc-10.0

where the path/to/boost points to the latest version in the trunk. I
received the errors in my original post.

I also see there is another libs/integer in Boost, so that I think you
must rename your own subdirectory to 'bitfield' instead. I do not know
why you chose 'integer'. I think you should be following the recommended
directory structure for sandbox libraries even if your library is in the
vault instead.
