I guess, I misread you. I originally thought, you were talking about a
wrapper script to call jam, but you certainly mean something like
"./configure". Well, though that doesn't match Jam's goal to simplify
building to the actual invocation of jam, I'm all for it. That script
should generate a file to be included by Jamrules, setting up the
build environment/target specific variables.

Nevertheless I wouldn't let the script build Jam.
