I just updated the prebuilt execs for IBM, SGI, OSF(Tru64), Solaris, Linuxx86
from the tools/build/jam_src in the CVS. As a bonus I added HP (never managed
to get a working version on HP but this time it worked out of the box)
I also updated the webpage in the CVS to reflect the addition of HPUX.

BTW, what's the bjam executable (that apparantly is a hard-link to the
jam-executable) ?

So all our unix platforms are covered but not the windowze one.
