I am using a legacy system and have to use boost 1_30_0 for the time being, it is a linux redhat 7.3 box. 

I have been trying to figure out how to use bjam?/jam?/b2? to install boost 1.30.0,  basically to achieve something like the following:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/boost-1.30.0
make install

I was able to get done with a newer boost version, but it seems not to work the same way and I couldn't figure it out from the docs or the various build.jam/Jamfile build files.  Anyone that knows and can point me to specific docs or give me any hints would be greatly appreciated!  Bonus points if you can tell me how to only build static versions of the libraries!
