Ah, that explains it: I'm using a modified build system as I usually
build boost.python stand-alone.

No, rebuilding from within a full boost tree shows the same error. I
tried adding "-<xsl:param>..." but that resulted in the error

Konsole output
error: "html:-<xsl:param>boost.defaults=none" is not a known value of
feature <format>
error: legal values: "html" "xhtml" "htmlhelp" "onehtml" "man" "pdf"
"ps" "docbook" "fo" "tests"

my full modified Jamfile is attached. Any idea what I'm doing wrong ?
Where should I add the "subtracted parameter" ?
