You need to inform boost build about where your boost headers are
located. Start by adding the following to your user-config.jam
(or just the Jamfile):

# Set Jam variable to the boost root pointed at by the environment.
import os ;
constant BOOST_ROOT : [ os.environ BOOST_ROOT ] ;

        : <include>$(BOOST_ROOT)

I generally just put the "requirements <include>$(BOOST_ROOT)" in
my Jamroot's project though.
