Dependency targets (<lib>) seem to be restricted to the current project.
Currently errors like the following are generated for dependencies from other

warning: rulename $(gGENERATOR_FUNCTION($(target-type))) expands to empty

I think they could be a convenient way to add libs from other boost build 
managed projects like
exe a.out : 
: : ;
This way always the correct lib is selected without the user having to fiddle 
with the "neverending" path generated by the build system. Large projects 
might not like to introduce this tight coupling but its convenient for 
smaller ones.
