Either you need to give the path to
the wave project:

W = $(BOOST_ROOT)/path/to/wave//wave ;

or you need to declare this project-id somewhere:

use-project /boost/libs/wave/tool/build : $(BOOST_ROOT)/path/to/wave ;

Alternately, the wave Jamfile can be modified to give itself an id:

project /boost/libs/wave/tool/build ;
