Clicking the Boost Build documentation link does bring up a local page
with further links of Tutorial, Documentation, and Github at the top of
the page. Clicking on the Documentation link gives an error with, under
Firefox, "Can't find the file at
my_boost_root/tools/build/doc/html/index.html. Is it really the
intention for the end-user only to have Boost Build Documentation in the
distribution if he manually builds the documentation for himself ? I
would at least expect that if the local documentation did not exist that
Boost Build would at least redirect to the latest build of its
documentation online.
