I'm afraid I can give no instant direct help -- I don't know how to make this in
Boost.Build V1. However, msvc transformation graph was considered during V2 design
and will be supported. I expect this can happen in two-three weeks. Of course, that
would be only a development milestone of V2, so I don't know if it will be possible
to use it in practice in your particular project.
