OK, thanks. I've fixed the problem. The standalone docs are
now built from standalone.xml, which is a copy of the old userman.xml.
Userman.xml, which is referenced by $boost_root/doc/src/boost.xml, no
longer contains a reference to the Jam docs.

It may not be elegant, but it's simple and it works.

Aleksey, can you sync and kick off a doc build when you get a chance?
