I've done some more work on it since then. But I'm coming up on a busy
time and can't give it much time for awhile.
I also took a detour to look at http://www.perforce.com/jam/jam.html I put
four days into Jam, but unfortunately at the end of that time still was not
able to build a single library successfully (except for toy cases targeting
the same directory as the source files.) Sigh. What a disappointment.
