The <file> feature is going to be deprecated in M10 and removed some time
after that. You can use

alias lapack : : lapack.a ;

to achieve the same effect. The reason <file> will go away is because it
precisely because there's another equivivalent. Moreover, there's hidden
code duplication -- and <file> handling is a bit broken with respect for
handling of "libpack.a" in sources.
