How does one access an environment variable in a jam file? For
instance, I want to stage all of my exe's in one directory on my
windows box, but in another on my linux box:

stage exe : project : <location>$(EXE_DESTINATION) ;

Actually, it would be better if there were a different way of doing
it besides environment variables. Any ideas?

Also, I really like Boost.Build, but it is very hard to get going.
Is there some documentation besides the manual that I don't know
about? When I look through the boost jam files for examples most of
what I see is undocumented. I know this is a work in progress.
Would it help for a neophyte like me to catalog undocumented
