Hi Zbynek,

here's what I use in my project:

use-project /boost/filesystem : $(POOL_DIR)/boost/libs/filesystem/build ;

And later

lib utils : utils.cpp debug.cpp
fs_helpers.cpp /boost/filesystem//boost_filesystem ;

While the directory mentioned by 'use-project' has both Jamfile and
Jamfile.v2, the latter is preferred by default.
