ISO boost library help

Trying unsuccessfully (so far) to use the Cygwin-provided boost libraries. The 
only boost-related package I saw was boost-build, which I've installed.

$ cygcheck -c boost-build
Cygwin Package Information
Package              Version        Status
boost-build          1.63.0-1       OK

Google seems to be telling me that I have to build (compile) the libraries with 
bjam, but finding no relevant documentation on how to do that from the Cygwin 

$ pwd
$ ls -l

Would appreciate some pointers.
