  Boost.Build can work outside boost. You can
check out just the build repository and
install it. Quickbook depends on Boost.Spirit
and other Boost libraries, so you need Boost
to build it. I suppose it would be possible
to distribute prebuilt executables. I'm not sure
why you mention DocBook as it's an external project.
