Sean's contribution would be helpful indeed and I believe you provided
the necessary pointers for him to get started.

As Borland no longer owns the C++ Builder product I guess the
corresponding toolset should be replaced by a new one (codegear?) in the
near future; however no change is necessary to Boost.Build in order to
use the latest version of C++ Builder.

What needs some changing on the other hand is the compiler
configuration; I expect to submit a patch for approval later today.

Sean, please wait until this first batch of patches is committed before
you start testing; all tests will fail until the new compiler is
properly configured.
