Every time I build the Boost.Python tests, it recompiles all the
source files, despite having been successful already. I'm pretty sure
this has something to do with the tricky fake response file target in
common.response-file. Why is that needed anyway? The explanation
there doesn't make any sense. The response file need only contain the
names of the sources, and a dependency of the targets on the response
file should be enough to ensure the response file gets built before
any of the targets do.
