Correction, what Aptitude installed was fop 0.95, when I run that
manually instead of letting bjam try it (again, thanks for the -n
command for bjam), it worked, it created the pdf. So it seems
boostbook needs some updating, or at the very least, the setup script
needs updating.

'man' is still failing however, and for the project I intend to use
this for, having it generate man pages would be useful.

And in the generated PDF it put:
[id test]
[id test] ]
too, like it did in the html, see attached...

Is my qbk wrong? Also, I could not get the qbk to 'compile' with the
purpose declarative inside article.

Also, what is the difference between article and the other possible
types, the documentation did not elaborate at all, just listed them...
