Added a skeleton 'configure' script that copies the
Jamrules_general.in to Jamrules_general.
Updated readme with information about this.

2 BUILDING ASCEND with JAM
3 ------------------------
4
5 The files in this directory support building the Ascend
6 libraries and executables using the jam* build tool.
7
8 The following files are included:
9
10 Jamrules_general.in - configuration & custom build rules used
11 by Jamfiles
12 Jambase - lightly customized version of standard
13 build rules (primarily to shore up support
14 for different compilers)
15
16 The Ascend jam build system currently supports building under Windows
17 using the MSVC, Borland, MinGW, and Watcom** compilers, and under
18 Linux using gcc/g77. With use of the included Jambase file, it should
19 work with both the original and ftjam variants of jam. However, the
20 system was developed primarily using ftjam.
21
22 Automatic processing of Jamrules_general.in to Jamrules_general by
23 configure is not currently implemented. A skeleton script
24 'configure' is provided which will copy the 'Jamrules_general.in' file
25 to 'Jamrules_general'. This file then needs to be hand-editied for
26 your local preferences and configuration.

29 Build Instructions - Linux
30 --------------------------
31
32 You can build the Jam static libraries on Linux at present:
33
34 1. jam must be installed and configured for the compiler in use.
35
36 2. Run ./configure
37 See above comments -- this script is just a skeleton at the moment
38
39 3. Manually edit Jamrules_general to set configuration and local
40 directory options. These settings are used by all the Jamfiles
41 in the Ascend source tree.
42
43 4. Change directory to base/generic/jam, type 'jam libs'
44
45 The static libraries will end up in base/generic/jam/Release/linux
46
47 Build Instructions - Windows
48 ----------------------------
49
50 As above, but instead of steam (2.) you need to manualy copy the
51 Jamrules_general.in file to Jamrules_general.

54 Notes
55 -----
56
57 * jam is an open source, multi-platform build tool
58 which is available in several flavors. These include
59 the original (http://www.perforce.com) and ftjam
60 (http://www.freetype.org/jam/index.html) variants,
61 among others.
62
63 ** Currently, Open Watcom 1.3 can compile the Ascend sources
64 and build the libraries. However, it does not supply the required
65 IEEE math functions isnan() and copysign(). At present, Ascend does
66 not supply these, so the user must provide these functions to use
67 the libraries under Watcom.
