Subject: [Boost-build] right way to use boost in own project

Good day time!
I would like to use the boost libraries in my project based on the boost
build system. What is right way to hide details of library naming
conversion (for example, libboost-regex-vc71-mt-d-1_38) from developers.
I saw an example from usage manual:
: requirements <library>/boost/filesystem//fs
It is right way, but where and how can I describe the boost symbol
(use-project, lib, alias or so on)? Of cause, my Jamroot and Boost
Jamroot have different locations.
Thanks in advance for any comments, suggestions, examples.
