Boost-Build :

I'd like to generate a static output of all the online-help contents, with :
bjam --help-enable-detailed --help-output html --help-output-file reference

as suggested by Rene Rivera, but it fails and prints the following
to stdout :

...found 112 targets...
...updating 1 target...

echo "<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN\">" >
echo "<html>" >> "help.html"
 echo "<head>" >> "help.html"

[ ...... snip many such lines ...... ]

 echo "</li>" >> "help.html"
 echo "</ul>" >> "help.html"

echo "</body>" >> "help.html"
 echo "</html>" >> "help.html"

...failed text-action help.html...
...failed updating 1 target...

It looks as if I might manage to get a file by making a script out of this
output, but it fails as is.

Is this feature now obsolete, and replaced by some BoostBook stuff, or is
this still supposed to work ?
