...sounds like a FAQ to me :) Volodya?

If you get the error message:

syntax error at EOF

this is usually caused by leaving off the semicolon at the end of the
last target decleration. For example:

exe foo : bar.cpp

It can also occur if you forget to place whitespace around the
semicolon. For example:

exe foo2 : bar2.cpp;

NOTE: Is there a way to detect and report this, or are we leaving it as
we are going to be moving to BBpy :)
