I now can take a tarball of my ORB source, untar it into a boost 1.35.0
distribution tree and type 'bjam --v2' and see my ORB library get built.

In the meantime, I've also completed upgrading the ORB to CORBA 2.6,
except for a few small known issues. I've also implemented a few CORBA
3.0 items, primarily the changes that changed many ORB objects to be
local interfaces.

I've got to take one more pass over everything and add boost compatible
copyright headers, and then I'll make an alpha version available for
people to play with.
