It has been a while since I looked at the "Getting started with CMake
and Boost" documentation but I would definitely make sure something
clear and concise is written up so that those developers coming over
from bjam will have a comfortable place to start. The last thing I
want it a bad experience from new Boost/CMake users.

I am part way through getting the testing to build correctly on OS X
(My primary machine) at the moment. Dave A. talked about giving me
write access to the svn repository to commit my changes that I have
been doing, not sure how that works so I'll let the boost folks
discuss that. I have zip up the cmake related files and post/send
those so you can see where I am at.
