Subject: [boost] help with including boost.log into the current trunk

I would appreciate some help in including the logging libs into the
boost compilation process.
I am using the recent SVN trunks, Cygwin 1.7.9 and g++ (GCC) 4.3.4.
Unfortunately there is nor README or INSTALL docs as I am used to in a
GNU automake environment.
So I tried my best based on what I found google-ing it:
I downloaded the current boost SVN trunk and the current boost-log SVN
Then I linked the log directories into the boost trunk:
$ ln -s boost-log/trunk/boost-log/libs/log/ boost-trunk/libs/
$ ln -s boost-log/trunk/boost-log/boost/log/ boost-trunk/boost/
Compiling boost with normal ./bjam does not recognise the log components
- chrono : building
- date_time : building
- exception : building
- filesystem : building
- graph : building
- graph_parallel : building
- iostreams : building
- math : building
- mpi : building
- program_options : building
- python : building
- random : building
- regex : building
- serialization : building
- signals : building
- system : building
- test : building
- thread : building
- wave : building
Explicitly including it gets me an error message:
$ ./bjam.exe target-os=cygwin --with-log
error: wrong library name 'log' in the --with-<library> option.
What am I missing? Is there an easier way to do it?
Thanks a lot for any help.
