Boost-Build :

Maybe I'm a bit impatient because I'm familiar with Perforce Jam, but I can't
seem to find good instructions for installing Boost Jam without the rest of
Boost. I'm assuming that's doable (or not?).

The Getting Started, Installing Boost.Jam simply states "Follow these
instructions to acquire a bjam executable for your platform. Install it
somewhere in your path." The link then states "The recommended way to get
Boost.Jam if you are using a Boost distribution is to download a prebuilt
executable from SourceForge." I did that and when I run bjam -v I see

Boost.Jam Version 3.1.10. OS=NT. (and the copyrights)

However, when I run bjam with a simple Jamfile, I get

Unable to load Boost.Build: could not find "boost-build.jam"
Attempted search from C:\src up to the root

Please consult the documentation at ''.

Obviously there's some other file that is needed, but the instructions don't
seem to mention this, perhaps assuming a full Boost download. I'd appreciate
some help or pointers. Thanks.
