  It should be possible. The Jamroot
would need to contain at least this
(possibly more, depending on what the
date_time Jamfiles use):

use-project boost : path/to/boost ;
path-constant BOOST_ROOT : path/to/boost ;
project : requirements

That's the most reliable, since date_time is meant
to be used as part of Boost.
