I've just made a final (I hope) tweak to the "lib" rule. Now it's possible to

lib png : z : <name>png ;
lib z : : <name>z ;


lib png : z : <file>png.a ;
lib z : : <file>z.a ;

this required non-intuitive syntax.

At the same time, the prebuilt.jam module which used to implement <file> was
removed. The <file> feature now works only for "lib" targets, and you should
use "alias" in other cases.

Finally, I've expanded the documentation on libraries (and other builtin
