I did some more experimenting, seems that I should be using more than
just implicit-dependency as that will only indicate that the target may
produce files that are included by the sources.

Adding <dependency>/boost//headers causes the links to be generated,
though I suspect the include path is being brought in my some other
means because based on the description of the "features" it seems I
should not put in <dependency> but instead <use> so the
usage-requirements are brought across.
