I do not know about how OpenSUSE packages boost but I always set up
the source tree and build Boost libraries myself. Boost Jam (& Boost
Build) come bundled with Boost - located in the tools/build folder in
case you use packaged sources or in tools/build and tools/jam in case
you use the sources directly from the SVN repository.
To install Boost Jam just go to its source folder, run the build
script (build.sh I believe on Unixes and build.bat on Windows) and after
that copy the build bjam executable to somewhere on your path.

I believe it is 'bjam -j 2'. :-)
Hope this helps.
