I don't understand your rigid resistance about any "external dependencies".
(B)jam.exe is just one single executable you would have to install. It replaces
make.exe. The only difference is, that make is included in MinGW.
It would also be possible to include the source and build it as just one
more tool in the startup phase of the build process. It's freeware.
What is more important than a question about "more dependencies or not"
is, that the build system had to be redesigned when switching from
Makefiles to Jamfiles. Perhaps it may be possible to tweak the
currently emerging Makefiel generator to also generate Jamfiles?
