But that's not the main background of this mail. Digging up other applications (for Linux) that can do profiling I took a look at LProf . Especially as LProf also includes a copy of ArgyllCMS  (currently 0.70b6 in the CVS). They're apparently using SCons for building LProf, which I've seen many times of being quite easy, reliable, and independent regarding to the platforms. Just requires Python to build ...Just an idea for an alternative to (b)jam to consider, where part of the mileage has been taken already by the LProf maintainers.
I've looked at SCons, but it doesn't hold much attraction over Jam, and some disadvantages (extra sting quoting to conform to Python syntax). Jam is also regarded as being quite easy, reliable, and platform independent. It just requires a C compiler to build. Graeme Gill.
