If you want to build the complete documentation you need doxygen,
latex and ghostscript. But this is only needed for some of the
libraries' documentation. This is a bit complicated, but we do supply
prebuilt documentation ourselves. If you want to get the documentation
for the trunk or release branches of boost you can download
'boost-trunk-docs.7z' or 'boost-docs.7z' (for release) from, although this is built irregularly so it
sometimes gets out of date.

Possibly, I'm going to eventually write new getting stated and
installation documentation. The wiki page I linked to is my starting
point for that.
