Never mind about the package, I'm awake enough now to realize it's Vladimirs
code :-)

OK, here's what you need to do to make it build outside of the Boost tree...

1. Either do as Vladimir suggested and set BOOST_BUILD_PATH. Or create a
boost-build.jam file with the single "boost-build
<path-to-boost-tools-build-dir> ;" line where you unziped the
program_options code.

2. Set BOOST_ROOT to the location of the boost tree. Enthier in the env, or
you can add it to the same boost-build.jam file above as: "BOOST_ROOT =
<path-to-boost> ;" (before the boost-build line)

3. Edit the Jamfile for program_options (libs/program_options/build/Jamfile)
to change the line that has: ": <include>$(BOOST_ROOT)" to: ":
<include>$(BOOST_ROOT) <include>../../.."

And then you can run bjam from the libs/program_options/build directory.
