I don't know if it's a standard way or not, but in the Sandbox,
you can find build_extensions. I use them to specify and build
dependencies like zlib, libpng, libtiff, etc.

1) Add the extensions to BOOST_BUILD_PATH += /path/to/exts
2) In Jamfile, add using zlib : X.Y.Z : /path/to/zlib/sources ;

Perhaps you'll find them useful.
