Subject: [Boost-build] building documentation with boostbook

Trying to work on Boost.Python in stand-alone mode I'm running into more
I'm trying to regenerate the documentation, which requires quickbook
(and implicitly, boostbook). As it turns out, neither is available by
Fedora packages (so I have just filed a Fedora bug report about that).
Meanwhile, I'm trying to compile quickbook and boostbook the usual way.
What is the suggested b2 command to build and install those two tools ?
The --with-libraries option only lists libraries, but no tools.
I was able to build quickbook (then manually copying it into the desired
install location), but I wasn't able to do that with boostbook, as the
'setup-boostbook.sh' script just prepares the current location itself
(the modular-boost source tree) to contain third-party tools such as fop
and DocBook stylesheets).
Is there a way to force the build process to use system versions of fop
and stylesheets already installed, and then install the boostbook tool
for system-wide use ?
Again, my ultimate goal is to be able to work on Boost libraries (or in
fact, any software using boost.build and other boost tools) without
having a full boost source tree. Unfortunately this is still very hard...
