Boost-Build :

I have installed all Boost 1.34.1 packages on an Ubuntu system,
including bjam and Boost.Build (2.0m11).

Getting the most simple example from

to work is a no-brainer.

But now I want this example to use for example the Boost.Filesystem library.

What is the proper way to do this on a system like Ubuntu where there
is no Boost root but instead just installed headers and libraries?

Can anyone show a minimal Jamroot that depends on a boost library?

Sorry for the noob questions but the lack of documentation for
Boost.Build makes it really difficult to do these trivial things.
