Hey, you seem to be good at creating nice syntaxes! This looks quite consice
and is probably even shorter than <find-library>. What do the users think?

I also wonder if we should extend this syntax to cover:

lib a : : <search>/usr ;

i.e when there are not sources for lib, it's considered searched. So the above
would be equivalent to

lib a : : <name>a <search>/usr ;
