This is somewhat unrelated to your question, but I am somewhat amazed
that the Jamfile-engine worked for you for this. I guess I did include
driver building in it, but I wrote it so long ago I had forgotten.

The main reason I am commenting is some people have had problems with
the Jamfile-engine and I have intended for some time to update it
based on a lot of the things we have learned about Jam since then, but
haven't done that yet obviously. But hey if it works for you, great!
