Subject: [boost] [build] referring to a tool from an external project

I'm trying to write a jamfile in an external project that uses boost.
The jamfile should invoke the wave tool to preprocess some code as a
build action. I have this:
$(>) -o- --config-file wave.cfg $(>)
W = /boost/libs/wave/tool/build//wave ;
: preprocess.cpp $(W) : do_wave
> error: Unable to find file or target named
> error: '/boost/libs/wave/tool/build//wave'
> error: referred to from project at
> error: '.'
> error: could not resolve project reference '/boost/libs/wave/tool/build'
If I use this instead:
W = /boost//wave
...it builds the wave dlls, not the command-line tool. So how do I tell
it to build the tool?
