True. I regularly use in the incorect term and generally use bjam to
mean boost-build. OTOH the OP wanted to discuss the build system, and
thus boost-build IMO. And you are right, something like boost-build can
be implemented on top of make (I also tried that long time ago) but
AFACIT there exists no such layer (on top of make) that is not specific
to some project but rather that can be used for any kind of project
(just like boost-build can)
