Sure, but that would involved creating individual features (so that
they can be overridden) and messing around with boost.root to get the
paths right. I'm more interested in following the path of least
resistance here. Build certainly could do more for boostbook (e.g. the
value of boost.root should be automatically set) but I'm not keen on
doing it.

Thanks for the review.
