I believe that whatever you have at /home/measkern2/docs/build-system/ does not

It is always best to use either SVN HEAD version of Boost.Build or the nightly build. Failing
that, the version from Boost 1.39 release.

I do not thing that anything of that is required, unless you want to take advantage of new
features or fixes in quickbook or the rest of documentation tools.
