I'm reviewing your changes now; they look good!
Please also give me a patch for the build system documentation.
I want to know how to use your new features! ;-)
Also, <suppress>true seems like a fine approach, but it should not be
specific to the lib rule; the logic for it should go in

Subject: [jamboost] Patch for inherited "variant" and others...
> I placed a file over on the "Files" section that patches (diff -c) from
> cvs version to implement the various things I mentioned earlier on this
> Here are the various changes:
> 1. Changed the "variant" rule to be as such: "variant name [: parents...]
> [<toolset>]<feature>value..." This lets a variant 'inherit' the properties
> from other variants. For example I use it as such:
> variant thot-common : <threading>multi <rtti>off <sysinclude>$(CVSROOT) ;
> variant thot-debug : thot-common debug ;
> 2. Added the path feature "sysinclude" so that it's value gets collected
> use in the STDHDRS variable. I made the changes for the gcc tools to use
> and to put the paths in STDHDRS in the system search path with "-isystem"
> instead of the user search path with "-I".
> 3. Implemented the ability to suppress the build of targets for libraries
> unless they are expressly dependent on by other targets, exe and dll. For
> one it's specified on a per library basis as such:
> lib testlib : test_lib.cpp : <define>TEST : <suppress>true ;
> exe test : test.cpp <lib>testlib : : debug ;
> That way only when the test exe is built is the testlib library also
> and only the specific variant that the exe relies on.
