Hi Phillip,

Okay, I had a mental block. I didn't realize the make you refer to
is the make.jam in the v2/tools directory, I thought it was a rule
you wrote. Now that I've looked at make.jam, I understand completely
what you're saying. Thanks for taking the time to explain it to me,
that helps a lot.
