That's odd, there should be a jamfile at
'tools/inspect/build/Jamfile.v2'. Can you check it's there? Maybe
something went wrong when you were checking out the submodules.

The inspect error is happening because boost's Jamroot depends on it.
If you run bjam inside of build, I think it uses build's Jamroot
instead, which is why there's no error. But it also possibly means
that build isn't configured to build quickbook. I'm not sure, the
people on the build list will know more than I do.
