Thanks. I forgot that was there.

It has certainly simplified the setup.

If Boost.Build had an integrated editor and debugger, I might agree. ;-)
The integrated debugger is the main reason that I use IDEs, rather than
just a favorite text editor and a build system. It's much easier to go
with the flow, and use whatever build system is built into the IDE, than
try to force it to work my way. I've tried both.

(Also, Boost.Build has a HUGE learning curve. I've used it for a couple
years now, on roughly a dozen small projects... most tools get
increasingly easier to use, but that one's still a major pain. A
powerful and cross-platform pain, but a pain nonetheless.)
