Boost-Build :

While editing the Jamfile to narrow the scope of error, I noticed that this
was because no --home option was given. Once I gave that option it compiled
like charm.
It was foolish of me not to give the option when README said so. Actually
initially I had downloaded the zip file from bgl website which is
out-of-date. They should really remove that. It was trying to make that
project work that muddled up things.

Anyways I really do appreciate your time and thanks for helping.
