A Jamfile shouldn't cause any problems. Jamroot could
cause a problem if you had a compiled library. (it
would prevent you from inheriting the library name
mangling code from Boost's Jamroot.) It also means
that you'll need to do extra work to make sure that
the <include>s are set correctly.
<implicit-dependency>/boost//headers should work
as long as you make sure that the Boost Jamroot
is loaded.
