I guess... it's a good idea. It's up there now.

To build bjam in the form that is ready for release, in the jam_sr dir, do:

./ --- dist

Yea I know twice, but it seems to work better that way, as it prevents
choking on the build itself. the "---" is needed because of the way the args
are passed into jam0.

To files up in the SourceForge section...

1. Upload the file to
2. Make sure you are loged in to the SourceForge system.
3. Go to the Admin section of Boost.
4. The go to "Edit/Release Files"
5. "Edit Release" the boost-jam product.
6. "Edit This Release" on the release, 3.1.4 in this case.
7. Check the file you uploaded in "Step 2" and press "Add Files..."
8. After the new page comes up, scroll down to "Step 3"
9. Set the release date (backdate), processor, and file type, press
10. Go to the "Files" section to verify the file is there.

10 easy steps ;-)

For more details read the SourceForge documents about the system. It's
actually readable, now that they rewrote them.
