Not much in the way of docs for this so you'll have to learn as you go, but
it's not hard at all... The easiest way is to take one ot the existing
toolset files "*-tools.jam" in the boost/tools/build directory and copy and
modify for your needs.

Once you take a look at the existing toolset files I'm sure you'll have more
questions, which I'll be happy to answer. But I suggest you post them to the
Boost.Jam specific list at:
