If you are really considering a make-based approach, I might suggest that there
is probably some group of users that would accept gnu make instead of nmake on
Windows (If not, I'm sure they will speak up now). I understand that this
violates some of the criteria set by Dave. However, gmake is easily obtained
for windows and a the core of make rules that can be shared will be much higher
if the same make engine is utilized (I haven't looked at Jam yet, but I presume
this is a key advantage of this approach). This doesn't necessarily satisfy the
