The Jamfiles located in the FreeType source directories are written
for the standard version of Jam, that handles among lots of other operating
systems, both MacOS and OS X. See 

When used with FT-Jam (a light variant, found at,
these files can also be used to perform incremental builds correctly, because
FT-Jam knows about #include MACRO_NAME_H schemes and computes header
dependencies automatically.

I know that there is some very _old_ and _modified_ version of Jam
installed with OS X, that is normally being used by ProjectBuilder or
something like that, but I have no idea wether this would work with our

I may be possible that the Jamfiles need some small fixes to compile
correctly on MacOS, but nobody had the time to test it until now.
In all cases, it should be very easy to do.

By the way, I'd be interested to know the exact version of Jam that comes
with 10.4. Did they upgrade it ? To know that, simply type "jam -v" or
"jam -?" on the command line.
