True, but: "jam" is only a build system, while "autoconf+automake" is
a *configure* and build (and install) system. They are vastly

As for the support tools: newer apples (MacOSX) have them, cygwin is
available for MSwin, I believe that BeOS has them, and of course all
unix systems have them. That covers the systems listed in
