Here's an example of how to do it for a variant of gcc...

~~~begin file: "BOOST_ROOT/tools/build/gcc-3.2-stlport-4.5.3-tools.jam"
local GCC_ROOT_DIRECTORY = /usr/local/gcc-3.2 ;
local GCC_STDLIB_DIRECTORY = /usr/local/gcc-3.2/lib ;
local STLPORT_ROOT = /usr/local/STLport-4.5.3-gcc-3.2 ;
local STLPORT_INCLUDE_DIRECTORY = include/stlport ;
extends-toolset gcc-stlport ;

It should be similar with the borland toolset. I haven't tried it with
borland so the toolset may need changes to work as easily as the above.
Which I'll do gladly ;-)

Also as long as you set BOOST_BUILD_PATH correctly the *-tools.jam file can
be anywhere you wish.
