 I've reread getting-started over, and noted a couple of additional
 inconsistencies. The windows getting started say, in 5.2.4 Invoke bjam

   Building the special stage target places Boost library binaries in the
 stage\ subdirectory of your build directory.

 Note the strange-looking backslash after "stage". In reality, the
 libraries are put to stage/lib.

 Now look at 6.1 and 6.2. Both suggest to add C:\Program
 Files\boost\boost_1_39_0\lib to linker search path, whilst it probably
 would be less confusing to use
 C:\Program Files\boost\boost_1_39_0\stage\lib -- not added 'stage'

 Also, section 5.2.4 say: For instructions on how to build only specific
 variants, please ask on the Boost.Build mailing list. This is probably
 unnecessary now that the same section gives a pointer to Boost.Build
 documentation, where all options of interest for building Boost are listed
 in a table.
