boost-jam: A make-like program1

Package available in: [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

Boost.Jam is a portable build tool with its own interpreted language, allowing to implement rather complex logic in a readable way and without resorting to external programs. It is a descendant of Jam/MR tool modified to suit the needs of Boost.Build. In particular, modules and rule parameters were added, as well as several new builtins.
