It stopped working after changeset 76991, which changed the geometry
script to use a relative path to the b2 executable at the root of
boost, but it isn't there in my setup. I guess this was done to avoid
using trunk b2 with the release branch. The easiest thing to do would
be to change the script to copy b2 into the expected location and run
another documentation build. I'll do that now.
