OK, here's the modification I'd like to make for Debian's build.
What can I put in the place of "LIBRARY_NAME" to get the name of the
file being built --- something like $(1), but without the entire path.
I also need the boost version string. I am content to use
-sBOOST_VERSION=1.27 on the jam invocation, but if there is already a
variable that holds this value, I'd use it instead.
