Boost build does give me the rules like "unit-test" among other
things, but I mean something that will allow me to do something like
this in my Jamfile:

  use-project /boost : /path/to/boost/root ;

  exe my_target : my_target.cpp /boost//filesystem /boost//serialization ;

This assumes that /path/to/boost/root contains a Jamfile.

BTW, I am using BBv2.

For the meantime I've chosen to package the boost libraries that my
projects require along with it using bcp -- but that's not the most
elegant solution.

The question then would be if it would be possible if there was a
package which contains the whole boost distribution? Something like
boost-all that contains a complete Boost distribution?
