Your are mostly at the right place.. In order to really help you though
we'd need to know what you are using to build the Bayes++ project. From
your mention of "/home/poobarr/Bayes++/Jamfile.v2" it seems to have a
BBv2 project. But does it also have a BBv1 "Jamfile"? Are there
instructions with the Bayes++ project on how to build? Is there a
Bayes++ group/maintainer you can ask?

A few minutes later.. Answering some of my own question after looking up
the Bayes++ project..

Looks like the newest version is BBv2 only. So at minimum you'll have to
do "bjam --v2" to get the BBv2 functionality.

You might want to read some of the BBv2 documentation..
Boost Build System V2

Specifically this.. and the part about boost-build.jam file..
Chapter 19. Installation

Since Bayes++ looks like it uses header only Boost libraries you: a)
don't need to build the Boost libraries that have source, b) it really
doesn't matter where you put the Boost headers.

And looking at the Bayes++/Jamfile.v2 all you should need to set is


PS. It looks like the docs on the Bayes++ web page are out of date.
