a) Install Boost.Build

cd tools/build/v2
./b2 --prefix=PREFIX install

b) (Optional) add PREFIX/bin to your PATH

Alternately, you can create a file
called boost-build.jam in the root
directory of your project that contains

boost-build path/to/boost-root/tools/build/v2 ;

Then you can just use b2.
