If you would like to use the Parallel Boost Graph Library (the files in
libs/graph_parallel, for example), you need to use an implementation of
the Message Passing Interface (MPI) to compile and run your program.

Are you sure you need a parallel implementation? If not, there is
documentation for the sequential version of the R-MAT generator in
<boost/graph/rmat_graph_generator.hpp>; see the test code in
libs/graph/test/generator_test.cpp in the Boost source tree.
