Boost-Build :

Where I work, we are looking for a build tool and we are thinking
of using Jam. We have looked at the extensions of Boost.Jam and at
first it looked interesting and usable without Boost. After trying to
use it without Boost, we quickly get an error, Boost.Jam searching for
boost-build.jam. Therefore, I have two questions:
1. Can Boost.Jam be used without Boost?
2. Would it be cleaner to have no dependency between Boost.Jam and Boost
and have in fact an enhanced version of Jam that can be used by all the
community? Is the current dependency necessary?

Thx and Regards,

Nicolas Fleury
