Anant -

The package manager versions are always older than the current release.
You are best building bjam from source. It is a painless process.
If you have downloaded a boost release then bjam will be built with the
process in the Getting Started guide. To build it on your own, simply
execute $BOOST_TOP/tools/jam/src/ .
