I had the same problem and I *think* the solution was to
to make sure there was a boost-build.jam file in some
ancestor directory with contents:

BOOST_ROOT = $(.boost-build-file:D) ;
boost-build tools/build/boost-build ;

where tools/build/boost-build is the part of
downloaded BB with files:


as well as others.

If you put your Jamfile in some directory, say
my-dev, located below the directory where you downloaded boost,
I think it should work since the boost I downloaded already
had the required boost-build.jam.
