bjam/BBv2 can detect changes to any files. You just need to add them as
dependencies to a target. But I suspect that's not what you are asking?
BBv2 doesn't explicitly add Jamfiles as dependencies, as it's rarely
useful to depend on the build files themselves. But it does detect
change to them incidentally, as the changes usually reflect on the
targets, and their dependencies, being built.
So to really answer your question you'd have to provide more detail as
to what you are trying to accomplish. Preferably with a small sample
project for us to talk about.
