Please do.

(This matters to me because currently my "quince" library is published
outside of boost, but it uses Boost.Build as its build engine. I refer my
users to that getting started guide, and they are going to get confused.)

I'm not having much luck with that.

My project uses boost, so in the days of 1.55, I had this:

    use-project /boost : "C:/local/boost_1_55_0" ;

in my user-config.jam. Now I have this:
    use-project /boost : "C:/local/boost_1_56_0" ;

in my project-config.jam and it appears not to be working; i.e. a build
that used to work fine now breaks, with this output:

    error: Unable to find file or target named
    error: '/boost//filesystem'
    error: referred to from project at
    error: '.'
    error: could not resolve project reference '/boost'

I'm probably doing something wrong, but to chase it I will need docs that
I can trust.
