To begin with, what version of Boost.Build are you planning to use?
If you have #include dependencies between generated sources, then you have no
choice but using V2, since I don't think V1 ever supported this. The downside
of using V2 for your project is that como is not yet support so some effort
must be spend on getting it working (I think not very much effort).
For V2, the tutorial gives a bunch of examples to help you get started. There
are also examples in tools/v2/example directory of Boost.
