You mean you can't even adapt to changing gcc versions in the bjam
configuration? I *knew* why I dislike build systems that can't adapt
themselves to changing system configurations (in the way autoconf does its
work). Seems like an autojam is desperately needed (and no, I'm not
volunteering :).

That's very reasonable, given the constraints you have. Thanks!
