I think that the problem goes a little bit deeper. Last I checked,
there were no usable bjam toolsets for the Mac OS X MetroWerks command
line tools. This is compounded further by the number of different
targets, e.g. "mach-o MSL before BSD", "mach-o straight MSL", and
various PEF configurations (although this last is slowly becoming less
important). Much as I would love to see build system support for this
platform I am unable to contribute the development effort at this
time. After the build system is functioning it should be pretty
straightforward to run the regression tests.
