Well, IncrediBuild somehow "wraps" the compiler invocation. It seems it
expects stdout and stderr to be directly available from the "wrapped"
process. And IncrediBuild reorders the compiler output, too. And it
stops working when it can't get the process' stdin and stdout.

So we end up with two tools trying the same thing :-((

I've reported this as a bug, but got no response from Xoreax :-(( I'll
ask my sysadmin to put some more force behind the request.
Or can we fix bjam not to capture stdin and stdout ? I admit that I am
afraid of the bjam source , so I never tried to fix this myself...
