Subject: [Boost-build] generating the documentation from cloned rep

I am trying to generate the documentation from a cloned repository in
order to validate some doc changes.

According to

I should do the following:

"The script requires: sh, curl and gunzip. To perform the installation,
execute the script tools/boostbook/ from a directory
where you would like the resulting XSL, DTD, and Apache FOP
installations to occur."

If I do that I get:
[alainm_at_tagir tools]$ ../../tools/boostbook/
Using existing FOP distribution (version 0.94).
ERROR: Please set the BOOST_ROOT environment variable to refer to your
Boost installation or copy user-config.jam into your home directory.
[alainm_at_tagir tools]$

But my BOOST_ROOT is set to the right place:
[alainm_at_tagir tools]$ echo $BOOST_ROOT
[alainm_at_tagir tools]$

The reason is that the script is looking for:
which does not exist.

I am not sure why it should exist nor what is the purpose of
"user-config.jam" (I only have a projet-config.jam at the project root)
but there seems to be smething wrong either with the script or the error
