I don't know bjam well enough to write a proper nvcc.jam file but I
managed to hack my way to something working, see attachment. There are
some hardcoded paths that you'll have to change, plus I find myself
occasionally editing the jam file to tweak the nvcc options --
obviously it'd be much better if they can be changed directly from the
Reverge Studios, Inc.
