yes, that works, but doesn't express the dependency from png to z.

Am I right:
usage-requirements are project specific, i.e. I cannot write something

lib pnglib : usage-requirements <source>z : <name>png ;

That means, that for each library I have to create a new project
block, where I can specify the usage-requirements.
With <source>xxx I can refer to a rule as a feature.

If my summary makes sense to you, then I will know what to do (create
some projects :) ). If it doesn't make sense, then I will try to
create a small example, that shows, what I want...

thx a lot
