-bash-4.1$ ls -l patch_boost
-rwx------ 1 kbelco kbelco 104 Nov 18 20:05 patch_boost

-bash-4.1$ cat patch_boost
cp register_archive.hpp boost_root/libs/serialization/include/boost/archive/detail/register_archive.hpp

Note that the patch_boost file contains ordinary un*x commands. In this case I’d suggest making a copy of register_archive.hpp with the mods you want to use, copy the file into the libs directory (as bjam will overwrite it if you copy it into boost_root). Make sure patch_boost is executable and in the top-level directory where you run from.
