Well, you would definitely be taking some risk by switching now, but
we do have some happy users already, and we support gcc. It hasn't
been tested on Solaris, but it has on windows. I don't see why it
shouldn't work. If you look around the boost tree you'll see quite a
few Jamfile.v2 files which demonstrate how to write v2
Jamfiles... you might just try it.
