Ah, yes, but I want to install b2 so that I can build boost myself (I'm
using clang, not GCC), and the docs say to do that in tools/build/v2 first.

Unfortunately my project (and pretty much any others) also needs built boost
libs, such as serializable.
As I say, I'm not even getting to the boost build, as it's the build tools
install that's failing. I have bjam, but it generates a warning about being
an incompatible version when I run it.
Incidentally, the bootstrap.sh in tools/build/v2 is slightly incorrect -- it
offers a --with-bjam option in the usage instructions, but there's no such
option in the script.
Thanks very much for the replies so far,
