This is fragile. Imagine Graph generates a link at boost/graph and
GraphParallel generates a link at boost/graph/parallel.
GraphParallel's link will end up in Graph's source directory!
There is also the case that multiple libraries provide files in the
same directory (eg. boost/pending). They cannot all link the
The script should always link individual files. That is dead slow,
