Thank you for your help! Both did the trick!

By the way, not a big problem, but the libraries are being placed in
/lib, despite me using --prefix in both the command and
bjam (I tried both because doing it for either one wasn't working :-) ).
  In both cases, I did: --prefix=/usr/local/boost_1_39_0 . Is this a
bug that I should report or does this switch do something else?

Thank you!
