Boost-Build :

Hi there,

I'm searching for a portable build system, with the goal of releasing some
code to the public. As my projects make frequent use of Boost libraries,
the obvious choice is bjam / Boost.Build . The idea here was that people
who want to use my library need to install Boost anyway.

>From what I can see, however, bjam is not installed by default, but only
serves to translate the Boost libraries. This is on an OpenSUSE 10.3 system
with Boost 1.34.1. Is this intentional or have I missed a command line
option to the configure script ? "configure --help" doesn't seem to contain
the option of installing bjam along with the compiled libraries.

Also: is there an equivalent to "make -j 2" ? I.e. the simultaneous
compilation of two files in one go ?

In any case thanks,
