I've been silent until now, but as other posters have already
discussed and I would like to reinforce, the reason against use of
boost build in the msvc world for serious projects is simply lack of
one killer feature: precompiled header support. Without this it's far
too slow. I would love to use boost build v2 in my large team projects
but it's unworkable for either full or incremental builds.

The alternative that we do use is visual studio projects and
solutions, which I loathe.

AM> There is another alternative for msvc people, namely
MakeProjectCreator, or mpc. This was developed as part
of the ACE project. The idea is an mpc file is used to
generate the platform-specifc makefile or whatever for the
platform of your choice. This includes generating project
files for msvc.
