The trick is to use 'sphinx' the python documentation tool. Probably
what you want to do is take tools/build/CMake/doc, swap out the logo,
cut out the boost-specific stuff, add acknowledgements, etc.. There's a
makefile in there that will build html, latex, all kinda stuff. To get
pdf you 'make latex', then in the build/latex directory there will be a
makefile with a 'make pdf' target in it.
