It's set up to only use the main boost stylesheets when being built
inside the boost tree, outside of the tree the default is just
'boostbook.css'. To use the boost tree settings, I think you need to

   boostbook standalone
      : poly_collection

Also, it might be better to set
'boost.root=' to always get the
latest version.

'boost.defaults' is normally set in the main boost tree's Jamroot, the
idea being that libraries built outside of the boost tree will want a
local copy of the stylesheets and images so that the documentation can
work offline, and won't want the home, libraries, etc. links at the
top of the page. This is what I use to get a copy the css files and

    boostbook fully-standalone
   explicit fully-standalone ;

   install css : [ glob $(BOOST_ROOT)/doc/src/*.css ]
       : <location>html ;
   install images : [ glob $(BOOST_ROOT)/doc/src/images/*.png ]
       : <location>html/images ;
   explicit css ;
   explicit images ;
