Yes, I've been planning all along that all targets would depend on the
Jamfile which defines them. Systems like cons and scons have a superior
scheme which encodes the important info (such as which files are members of
an archive) into an MD5 checksum which gets stored somewhere and compared
between builds to see if it has changed. That would be nice, but not
critical, I think.
