Just to clarify: you don't need the DocBook stylesheets for BoostBook to work.
xsltproc will just load them over the network if they are not found locally.
So aside from any bugs, the only way the "using boostbook ;" is going to fail
is when Boost.Build is there but the BoostBook XSL is not there.

This doesn't mean that I'm opposed to commenting-out the "using boostbook ;"
and "using xsltproc ;" lines, but it may be reasonable just to either change
the errors.error into a warning or remove the warning entirely (since the
BoostBook XSL could also be loaded from the network, if it is not available
