Attempting to use QuickBook to create both HTML and PDF documentation.

First of all, compiled just about everything I can compile in boost,
including about all the tools, on Ubuntu.

I created a directory named qb_test.

I created a file called test.qbk and filled it with:
[article TestingArticle
        [quickbook 1.5]
        [version 0.1]
        [authors [, OvermindDL1]]
        [copyright 2010 OvermindDL1]
        [/ [purpose /WikiWiki/ style documentation tool]]
        [id test]

This is just a simple testing thing, we shall see how it works overall...

* Initial creation...
* Two pages setup, intro and change_log


I ran:
quickbook test.qbk

It created a test.xml file, not quite what I was looking for, I take
it that it does not call boostbook directly...

So then I started looking for how to call boostbook and became pretty
lost, for some reason I recall this being easier on Windows...

Decided to try to use bjam (although the project this is eventually
going into uses CMake, so no bjam eventually...), made a Jamfile
project test
import boostbook : boostbook ;

boostbook test

And running bjam complains about not having found boost, which makes
sense since boost was build as a different user so its building
directory is inaccessible.

Basically I want to build a quickbook documentation for another very
large C++ project that itself uses CMake, how would I go about doing
this? The quickbook documentation is lacking in how to get a finished
