Subject: [Boost-build] Improved Boost.Build install
From: Vladimir Prus (ghost_at_[hidden])

I've committed a set of patches that make is *much* easier to install Boost.Build itself.
Now, given a source tree, one should do:

        - ./ [or .\bootstrap.bat]
    - ./bjam --prefix=PREFIX install

and that's it. When one runs PREFIX/bin/bjam, it will automatically look for the
rest of Boost.Build in PREFIX/share/boost-build, so there's no need to set
BOOST_BUILD_PATH, or boost-build.jam, or anything else.

Comments appreciated.
