I've had the same problem with the website. It looks like
boost-build.jam checks BOOST but not BOOST_ROOT. So applying the
attached patch might help (or you could just set BOOST). If it works
and no one has any objections I'll apply it to boost-build.jam in both
the sandbox and website as I think the BOOST_ROOT environment variable
is more established than BOOST.
