I have no idea. I don't understand how boostbook.jam works.

But if it would, then they should probably be changed to not depend on
boostbook_catalog.xml. Which I guess means that they wouldn't get
rebuilt when the settings change - but that would be a lot less
confusing than the current situation since it would be obvious that
they haven't been rebuilt.
