Hmm. Still not working for me though. Maybe I have something
configured incorrectly?

OK, thanks. For now though, I'll keep running off of V: until it

Yep, removed doc/catalog.xml and doc/bin. Still doesn't work.

Did that, and I get the following (irrespective of whether
BOOST_ROOT is set or not):

V:\doc>bjam -sDOCBOOK_XSL_DIR=v:\doc\docbook-xsl -
