Unfortunately I'm not in charge of the QNX environment. I am an
infrastructure developer (not the QNX development) and I develop/maintain
our core libraries on four platforms. (OS X, Windows, Solaris, QNX). I'd
like to add boost to our core libraries.
I normally build via NFS but I found that you can build bjam on an NFS
share from a Mac when building on Solaris. Hopefully I can get the mounts
to work on QNX.

I've created a primitive comment file, but I can't find a timestamp. One
is not created in on the QNX box for the HEAD revision, nor is one created
in 1_32_0 when I run the regression on my mac. Is there a switch to create
Also, what is the content. Is it simply 'date'?

Cool. I'll investigate that path.
Thanks for assistance!
