The way I do it it to have one top-level "stage" rules, one which installs
exes and another which installs libraries. If you want to specify stage in
each project, you can also define two targets.

If that's no convenient enough, you can get away by putting this to your
top-level Jamfile (if using m10, this must be in project-root.jam):

path-constant TOP : . ;

rule install ( exes * : libs * )
stage install_exe : $(exes) : <location>$(TOP)/bin ;
stage install_lib : $(exes) : <location>$(TOP)/lib ;

and using this "install" rule in every Jamfile.
