Subject: [Boost-build] Fixing the building of documentation on Linux
From: Philipp Thomas (pth_at_[hidden])

while trying to also build the documentation when creating boost rpms I
noticed that tools/build/v2/tools/boostbook.jam hasn't been adapted to
linux because in Linux the xml stuff has standardized directories so there
is no need for explicit paths to xml sylesheets and DTDs. I fixed that with
the attached patch but I'd need help in making the fixes OS dependent so
that the non-Linux case is unchanged.

BTW, I dumped the doc generation idea after I noticed that a) it needed
hours and b) needs a java lib from SUN which has a license that is
unacceptable to a Linux distributor.
