We build it ourselves. Well, I am actually the one who got it all
working for our environment, and am supposed to make sure it stays that
1.34 scares me to death.
I had barely come to terms with the highly unusual build environment of
bjam. The vast amount of effort and changes necessary to support the
new build environment has me extremely nervous. I imagine the only way
we will move to 1.34 is when we MUST have something in there... or
