The page you linked says doc/html is required for all libraries. I hope
you're not requiring to commit auto-generated docs to git?
Also there's a typo:
1. Define a boostboost target.
I believe, it should be "boostbook".
Regarding the boostbook target, I'm not sure I understand what changes
are needed, if any. E.g. in my Jamfile I have:
Do I need to add:
alias boostbook : log
: : : <implicit-dependency>log ;
or are the existing lines enough? The point of confusion for me is that
there seems to exist the boostbook rule in Boost.Build and I'm supposed
to re-define it with the alias?
