Hi all!

I simplified the quickbook toolset so that it uses only helper functions
provided by BBv2.

Namely, I removed the quickbook-invocation-command, which was used to
find the full path to the quickbook executable so that I could tag it as
a virtual-target (common.get-invocation-command only returns the command

The problem I have now is that I must get the full path to the generated
executable, in order to invoke it. Right now, the following is working
for me:

quickbook-binary = [ path.join
[ $(target).path ]
[ $(target).name ]

As I didn't find any documentation about getting the full path to a
target documented I'm wondering if this is the best way to do it or if
this qualifies as a shameless hack...

As I said, this has been working for me, but I'd like to hear your
opinions before commiting the reworked toolset to CVS and forgetting
about it.

Best regards,
