The only thing I can point to is instructions for getting that port:
It's very early version, so don't expect much from it. Basically, the idea is
to rewrite high-level part of Boost.Build, while retaining the underlying
build engine and (initially), Jamfile syntax. After that, we can consider
allowing Python build description files.
