Is this documentation that will be integrated into the general Boost
release build? I ask because there are special requirements for that.. In
an ideal world I, personally, wouldn't need to do anything. But since the
release building rebuilds all the documentation I need to know what tools
need to be installed to build it.

Most likely, you can just use the "make" target type <>.
