The question is how to include it in the build. The only way I see, is to
included it in the actions of the rules where they are needed, like `cat
openbeos.inc`. Do I have to say, that I find this very ugly?

Please, let's add a built-in Jam rule for executing commands at parsing
time. Such a thing is really missing (at least when comparing it to make).
I reckon, the `src/tools/jam' directory is not just for fun in the new

Regarding the ReadMe file: unless someone objects I'll go add a short one
this evening/night. I tested BeBochs and it works fine (though slow -- I
hope due to the emulation and not because the kernel is a snail ;-) and
