I have some existing C++ programs and makefiles, but I
want to use some boost C++ libraries such as graph,
random number and time, so I am thinking converting
the boost jam file into a regular makefile and use
make to compile them.
However, instead of doing that, because I will not
modify the boost files anyway, I just use the bjam to
compile the boost libraries. Then I just reference
the boost C++ libraries headers and compiled code in
my regular makefile.
