This has nothing to do with build system. For whatever reason, Jamfile
for the function_types library assumes there's <boost-root>/dist/bin/wave
binary -- and there's no reason to assume that.
I don't know how wave is used by function_types, but requiring that wave
is built and installed seems a questionable thing -- was it ever discussed,
and agreed upon?
In fact, here's what Jamfile in question has:
: preprocess_arity_loops.cpp : wave
so it's not even building anything the user would ever find in
installed tree. I'm confused as to what's the purpose here.
