Hello Vladimir,

I have reworked (again) all my jamfiles (well actually most of them are
generated by a python script) and now I think my Jamfiles are pretty
clean and use boost-build in a correct way.

I just timed a bjam -n and on an old machine (PIII 633Mhz) this takes
199.5 real and 178.27s user time. I also tried the same on the real
project (where the sources files are not empty) and I was surprised that
it took about as much time (201.89s real and 175.61 user time). This
would indicate that parsing all files to follow all #includes would
alsmost take no time (or does the -n option disable that?). Also the
same test on a athlon1900 takes 114s real and 106s user-time.

I'll send the test-case tomorrow.
