Subject: [Boost-build] [Distributing] Configuring boost tools
From: Bernhard Reiter (ockham_at_[hidden])

I'm interested in adding boost tools (as boostbook, quickbook etc.) to
the Ubuntu/Debian libboost package. ( See also )
It is of course pretty easy to get them installed, say,
to /usr/share/boostbook or /usr/bin (quickbook and other executables).

However, I can currently not find any obvious way to "auto-register"
them with Boost.Build, so they can be found in a system-wide way. Just
adding things like

import boostbook-config ;
import xsltproc-config ;
using doxygen ;
import quickbook-config ;

to /etc/site-config.jam would lead to conflicts with the boost-build
package, as that's the package that installs this file.

Any help where to put those lines for system-wide use very much

Kind regards,
Bernhard Reiter
