thanks for the link. Unfortunately it works the wrong way. The tough
part for me is not to generate the files but to extract the targets,
files and options from a Jamfile. (MPC looks incredible usefuel for the
generation part, though). In my eyes parsing the Jamfile is not an
option because it would require to emulate most of bjam's
functionality. Thus I try to create a toolset in the hope that the exe
target will get all relevant options (including project wide options
etc) by the build system.
