Take a look at to get an
overview of how the toolchain works, then assuming you want to run the
commands yourself (ie not from Boost.Build) I suggest you cd into
libs/config/doc and run a:

bjam -d2 -a

So you can see what all the command are.

Otherwise running via Boost.Build is probably the easiest way for now....

HTH, John.
