prebuilt execs are updated for Aix, irix and solaris and tru64(thanks to
David). You can download them via the Boost.Build documentation !

On HP, compiled succesfully but it still gives the parse
error when running jam although I defined the env.vars YACC and YYACC to
be empty ?

BTW, David, I committed some obvious changes to the jam_src directory.
First of all, I added the -Ae CFLAGS and CCFLAGS for HP-UX in jambase.c
and Jambase. I also changed the C++-style comment in parse.h to a
C-style comment and added some newline characters after the #endif
directive for 7 files. Hope that's OK.
