Its the second case -- autoconf uses the output of
xxx-config to create the Makefile. But I'm still not
sure how to do this with Boost.Build.

The main problem is that you don't know beforehand
where the libraries and header files your project
depends on will be located on the host system. Also,
libraries you want to link to may introduce
dependencies on other libraries. How does Boost.Build
handle this problem normally? Do you have to assume
standard locations for libraries your project depends
on? It seems like a huge problem that must have been
dealt with... or am I looking at this the wrong way?
