#3508: bjam output in colours

 I think it would be very useful if bjam prints output to stdout in colours
 to help to distinguish at least information messages, warnings and errors.

 CMake does provide coloured output out of the box. For GNU make and GCC
 there are http://bre.klaki.net/programs/colormake/ colormake] and
 [http://schlueters.de/colorgcc.html colorgcc].

 All these tools help programmers to avoid ''nystagmus'' issues while
 analysing compiler output :-)

 As a proof of concept, I attached [http://mateusz.loskot.net/?p=465
 colorbb'' script a rough port of the colormake] to work with bjam + GCC
