Ok, I just did it (see attachment). It really wasn't much work, I only had to
replace borland by kylix, bcc32 by bc++, and tlib by ar. However, there might
still be some finetuning neccessary due to several bugs in Kylix. Also I
haven't added support for shared libraries yet. Maybe I'll try out Boost
Build V2 with Kylix on a project later this week. This might force me to add
more features to kylix.jam.
