James is a reasonably complex animal all wrapped up in a single 
buildfile with more than a few idiosyncrasies (some of which I'm 
responsible for (during a previous life)).

I'm going to setup a build in jams which is just the core compile and 
I'm going to strip back the gump definition just to the necessary deps 
to get a compile complete.  After that we can escalate thing upwards.

I'm cc'ing server-dev@james so the guys know that for a while it will be 
somewhat of a construction zone.

Cheers, Steve.
