I'm afraid you'll have to copy some of that scripting. But in fact, you only
really need the part that grabs the '--prefix' command line option. The other
part of Boost Jamfile.v2 -- which gets the list of libraries to install, is
probably not needed for you.

It's just a textual "stage" -> "install" rename. The "install" rule won't get
any magic support for --prefix option, at least yet.
