Ok, we're well past the weekend so a quick update if anyone is
interested (not a lot has changed)
The process is considerably more complicated than I thought as there are
all sorts of strange extra project files to learn about for the
environment. Further, it does not look like simple console applications
are supported which might be tricky for the test tools.
With a little perseverence I see no reason why bjam could not be
persuaded to build the projects (once I understand all the extra bits)
but I am not sure about performing the run-time tests. As this was a
little recreation on the side and I am rather busy elsewhere, this will
have to go onto the back burner for a while unless someone else wants to
take it on.
