Thanks. Someone else let me know that privately. We're rather far
behind, unfortunately. Upgrading will be a challange since we don't seem
to have a baseline version to begin merging from. That's a task on my
to-do list for next year, I'm afraid.

Having done some experimentation yes, that is what I need. (It would
also be great if it could do so without doing all of the file time
checks, which makes it take longer than it should.) What's the best way
of identifying the project targets? What I've been testing is this :

bjam -a -k -n --debug-building ... some_target |
sed -n -e "/.*Building target/s|^.*Building target

which seems to work, I'm just not comfortable that I'm extracting the
correct lines.
