Boost-Build :

I'd like to echo what Ray Lambert and Steven King said. I have three
main frustrations with Build Build v2:

- The documentation
- The error messages
- The inscrutability of the Jam and/or Boost Build code

So I can understand why some people would like to replace it by
something else.

But I've been able to get it to do nearly everything I want, including
building installers and zip archives for releasing software. And I love
the way Boost Build knows how to compile and link on different platforms
and does not need to be taught how by me (since I usually do not know
how myself). So I am usually a very happy customer.

Good documentation would probably seal the deal for me.
