It's a bit hard to say without seeing errors etc. What platform are
you using, have you installed docbook, and how?

If you've installed docbok and there's no error then my guess would be
that you should edit the Spirit jamfile, change the lines that
currently say:

import boostbook ;
import quickbook ;


using boostbook ;
using quickbook ;

Which is probably what it should be.

There's a glob in the main documentation jamfile which picks up
anything in a 'libs/*/doc' directory, which is how it gets built.
