Never heard of Tandem until you mentioned it, so if you're confused, don't
ask us ! :-)

Probably not: remember that most of Boost can be used as "headers only", so
depending on which libraries you want to use, you may not need to build

If you do need to build some libraries, then frankly it's not hard without
using bjam: in most cases it's just a case of building the library's source
files into a shared or static library. Some things like python are a bit
harder than that, and you may need to set some defines to build shared libs
on Win32 (with exported symbols), but if you look at the Jamfile for the
library you want, it should be reasonably readable/comprehensible.
