Gr. I just read the long "SCons users" thread from September last year and
the numbers for BB V2 don't seem very encouraging, you are right. How

Reading through the documentation BB V2 seems to have most of the features
that make for a good cross-platform build system. Maintaining makefiles that
need to build many configurations is no fun :(

No, but the slow startup must be caused by something else then. Right now, it
doesn't matter anymore, since we've considered and discarded SCons anyway.

Thanks for the input. I am looking forward to seeing a fast, easy to use
Boost Build V3! (No sarcasm intended)
