2. Place the Boost.Jam binary, called "bjam" or "bjam.exe", somewhere in
your PATH. Verify that the correct bjam is being executed by running "bjam
--version". You should get [ENTER MILESTONE VERSION]
3. Configure toolsets to use: Open new/user-config.jam file and follow
instructions there to specify what compiles/libraries you have and where
they are located.
4. You should now be able to go to examples-v2/hello, and run bjam there. A
simple application will be build. You can also play with other projects in
