'explicit' will cause those targets not to build for regular install,
so it will fix the problem.

There's one issue though -- I think that 'function_types' will still
appear in output of

        bjam --show-libraries

in boost root. That is supposed to give the list of buildable libraries,
and since function_types does not really buildable/installable.

We probably can either move that Jamfile somewhere else
(say, build/util/Jamfile) and add a comment to the Jamfile that is
requires Wave built and installed, and that Jamfile is for maintaining
the library, or we can teach top-level Jamroot to ignore this Jamfile.

I'd suspect moving it is better, it reduces a potential for confusion.
