IIUC, this depends on two things. Either:

(1) The project that references boost//thread is in a subdirectory of $(BOOST_ROOT):
this means that Boost libraries can reference other Boost libraries like this;

(2) You import the $(BOOST_ROOT) library names in a parent Jamfile of the one you
are referencing the boost//library in. I can't recall exactly how to do this, but I think
it is something like:

   using-project boost : $(BOOST_ROOT) ;

You could have:

   alias boost : $(BOOST_ROOT) ;


   exe test : [ glob *.cpp ] boost//thread ;

I believe that would work. Either way, I think you need $(BOOST_ROOT) somewhere
when you are not in a child of $(BOOST_ROOT).
