My development tree is:

sandbox //this is where I put development directories
torjo //where, for example, I've downloaded John Torjo's rangelib
lje //this is where I do my development
Jamfile.v2 //this *file* "connects" lje to boost_1_33_0 to
//make it appear part of boost.
//This is done with contents:
<----------------- cut here ---------------------
project boost
: requirements
: usage-requirements
>----------------- cut here ---------------------
policy_ptr //for example
