No problem. I don't know if this is related, or if this should be the
topic of a new thread. I'm trying to get BoostBook and QuickBook up and
running, but am running into trouble. I've successfully run
tools/boostbook/ from tools/boostbook/installs. I've
successfully run build/ from build so that b2.exe and bjam.exe
were created in build. If I follow the directions at the end of, the
following error messages:

  ../build/bjam.exe ./Jamfile.v2
<snip>/tools/build/src/build/project.jam:262: in find-jamfile from module
error: Unable to load Jamfile.
error: Could not find a Jamfile in directory '../../tools/inspect/build'.
error: Attempted to find it with pattern '[Bb]uild.jam [Jj]amfile.v2
[Jj]amfile [Jj]amfile.jam'.
error: Please consult the documentation at ''.

If on the other hand I do run bjam from the tools/build I get:

./bjam.exe ../quickbook/Jamfile.v2
warning: No toolsets are configured.
warning: Configuring default toolset "gcc".
warning: If the default is wrong, your build may not work correctly.
warning: Use the "toolset=xxxxx" option to override our guess.

but no quickbook executable.
