Hey Dave -- I worked at Dragon Systems while you and Tim Peters were
there -- sorry if this has already been answered, but why the
insistence that gcc.jam and darwin.jam merge? I thought the whole
point of the tool inheritance framework was to allow for this kind of
derivation? I'm happily using BBv2 on a PowerBook and I would hate to
encounter a ton of churn to back get to where I am today. Seems kind
of unusual to me to include a ton of Darwin/MacOS X-specific rules
and actions to support bundles and frameworks in gcc.jam.
