Wow! Excuse me. My position in this list is much lowly...

That's Jam's issue. Not here.

You right, I can provide not all items of
(and you too). But most.

Really I can design core schema and real build for gcc (Linux,
Solaris). And, may be, build for VC6 with nmake. Also I can write
options for aCC compiler (HP's, HP-UX), but can't check now
whether it really work.

If this has some sense, I can start.
