Otherwise, you are using the Makefile in libs/graph/src directly (not
part of the Boost build) or you're building with BBv2, which is not
officially supported yet. The Jamfile.v2 in the boost root should not

build-project libs/graph/build ;

because that Jamfile builds optional graphvis components that require
