Agh! Seems like Boost.Build assumes build inside the source tree! It also
sets BOOST_PATH variable, which is needed for correct include paths. Quite
troublesome... I think you better copy the library over boost source tree.
In V2 there will be support for multiple project, which will solve such
P.S. I'll go offline now, but feel free to report other issue you might run
into. I'll address them on Monday.
