I am knowledgeable in makefiles, but this leads to a problem: you need to
configure the makefile to handle all the various compiler and platform
combinations - something bjam already handles, so why duplicate this effort?

Is there a bjam file for bjam?! That way it could be bootstrapped. But then
why not just download a pre-built version of bjam?
