Comment (by myselfasunder@…):

 It turns out that the directions under 5.1 don't work at all, but 5.2.1
 works fine.

 However, 5.2.4 (using b2 to build Boost) don't work.


 boost$ b2 --build-dir=/tmp/build-boost toolset=gcc stage

 Unable to load Boost.Build: could not find build system.
 /home/dustin/build/boost/boost-build.jam attempted to load the build
 system by invoking

    'boost-build tools/build/v2 ;'

 but we were unable to find "bootstrap.jam" in the specified directory
 or in BOOST_BUILD_PATH (searching /home/dustin/build/boost/tools/build/v2,

 Please consult the documentation at ''.

 ''bootstrap.jam'' is located here:

 boost$ find ./ -name "bootstrap.jam"

 If I change to tools/build/src:

 boost/tools/build/src$ b2 --build-dir=/tmp/build-boost toolset=gcc stage
 notice: could not find main target stage
 notice: assuming it is a name of file to create.
 error: Project target requested but not yet assigned for module
