Sorry to display my ignorance here, but what on earth is a "Jamfile"? You
should either specify that to build this on other platforms you need 'bjam'
(non-standard in the Unix world) giving a link to it, or (more likely to be
useful) provide a normal Makefile for the build. I tried google(bjam) and got
all sorts of irrelevant links. Under Linux, 99% of the people will try to
build this using gcc/make, so a simple makefile will probably do.
An unrelated question: do you know what advantages ImageMagick has over PIL? I
ask out of honest curiosity. I've long been an ImageMagick fan, but since
Python has sort of 'builtin' imaging support via PIL, I wonder what the
differences are. Anyway good luck with this, I love ImageMagick so I hope
your project can be built under Unix soon.
