Has it produced something?
BTW, error code may be less than zero on windows

html HTML output (multiple files). This is the default
onehtml HTML output in a single HTML file.
With metacomm' xsltproc installed, 'bjam html' (or just 'bjam') silently
fails for me, but 'bjam onehtml' works. Binaries from
http://www.zlatkovic.com/libxml.en.html work in both cases.

AFAICT, its purpose is to contain this old fix:
BoostBook docs should be updated to point to binary packages made by
Igor Zlatkovic, IMHO.
