Subject: [Boost-build] build system changes for stand-alone build of Boost.Python
From: Stefan Seefeld (stefan_at_[hidden])

as mentioned previously, I would like to decouple Boost.Python from the
rest of Boost as far as building and releasing is concerned.
I have forked the official Boost.Python repo and am working on my own
"standalone" branch
( Once
things work correctly, I plan to push them upstream.

I would very much appreciate if someone from the Boost.Build team could
review these changes:

The biggest chunk of this change is the addition of the "boost.jam"
file, which I hope I can remove again soon, once it made its way into a
Boost.Build release. (I'm working right now with Boost.Build 2014.10,
which doesn't have it.)

The rest should be pretty self-explanatory. (Note that despite my
original plans to support both, standalone as well as integrated builds,
I now think that standalone-only builds should suffice, as there is no
point in keeping Boost.Python inside Boost (as far as builds and
releases are concerned) once standalone builds fully work.)

Thanks for your help !
