The actual bjam file involved was for Vicente Botet Escriba's bitfield
library so maybe he will read your reply and make the appropriate
changes if he still has to. Once I did an SVN update on his library, the
documentation was already there and so I did not try to build it again.
Needless to say his jamfile should be correct but my goal was just to
read the docs for bitfield.
