No, you're right, other people have made the same mistake. It's only
been a potential problem recently as I only used to build the
documentation that's in $BOOST_ROOT/doc/html. But now that I'm
building it in various libraries' own directories it's a little bit of
a problem. I have been thinking about changing it so that when you
build the documentation normally it builds in a different directory
(say 'dev-html'), and then when I build it I pass a parameter/target
to tell it to use 'html'. But I haven't got round to working out how
to do that with Boost.Build, and I'm not even sure if it's a good idea
- it might be confusing.
