Back in 2003 when I first got involved with Haiku I wrote a
Jamfile-engine and some newsletter articles describing it and the use
of Jam. As I recall there were a few bugs so it might be worth having
the Jam experts (ahem Ingo) look over it, but in general it should be
pretty usable. Though there is probably a lot of things from the Haiku
build system that could be ported over to improve the Jamfile-engine.

The articles were migrated to the current web-site:

http://www.haiku-os.org/documents/dev/the_art_of_jamming_all_parts

Obviously I never wrote part 3...

Here is a direct link to the Jamfile-engine, still hosted on sourceforge ;)
