Boost-Build :

I have to try and get boost to build for Green Hills Integrity, a
proprietary real-time operating system. They have their own C++
compiler that I think is built on top of the EDG front end, and the
Integrity OS has POSIX API's. I have already compiled several of our
simple sources that use header only boost libraries without too many
problems after creating my own boost/config/user.hpp file.

So now I want to build all or at least most of the boost libraries. I
am familiar with scons and make, but not bjam. :-( Where and how
should I start? The compiler and linker are windows executables that
cross compile for a PowerPC target. In scons, you just change out the
toolset. Is their a mechanism like that for bjam? Or is bjam not the
only alternative? Green Hills also has a GUI based builer that you can
drag files into and press buttons to get builds. But I would assume
using bjam would probably be the safest thing to use.

Any help, advice, etc would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
