No, I'll try to sort it out tonight.

No, I just run b2 in 'libs/logs/doc'. It's actually a bug in boost
build that we need to do that, but no one has ever fixed it. I build
using the shell script at:

It has become quite complicated over the years, but the relevant part is this:

    cd $boost_root/libs/$library/doc
    find html -name "*.html" -print0 | xargs -0 rm
    $B2_EXEC --enable-index || echo "Error building: $library" >>
