The scripts are actually a combination of bjam + perl + C++.
At the moment, the only thing that it does reliably is to
count the number of times each template is instantiated.
A month or two ago, I tried to make it produce a gprof-like
call graph by parsing the instantiation backtraces, but it
doesn't really work, and I broke gcc support in the process.
Hmmm, I'll try to fix this over fall break.
