   I was just looking for a way to run a python script before and
after building a target. As it was a one time job, I had a look at
on the recommendation of Darren Garvy on the cpp-netlib list. However,
the notfile rule doesn't seem built in and I haven't been able to find
any working example of this anywhere else.
Am I missing something as I still on the learning curve with this tool?

Also, is there any other way to just ask for the execution of a python
script (or any shell command) at specific points in the build process?
