jam strikes me more as a language to build build systems in than a build system.
I remember trying to set the equivalent of CFLAGS and prefix with Boost... it took a couple of dozen lines of patches to the build system just to do that, and a couple of patches to the jam source bundled with Boost.
Sorry, but I prefer Automake's nasty verbose makefiles to *that*.
