I probably will be working on that a bit sometime next month.

Boost.Build v2 is not ready for prime time. Boost.Build v1 should be
perfectly fine for getting Boost going under Forte CC. The main thing is to
make a toolset file. Toolsets tend to be pretty straightforward. You might
look at one of the simpler ones, say boost/tools/build/vacpp-tools.jam.
