What about:

stage dist : libs//whatever ;

notfile postprocess-them-all : dist ;

The targets produced by 'dist' will be fed as sources to another main target,
and that main targets will be built only after 'dist' is done installing

The above uses my 'notfile' target that I've posted a while ago -- you can
search the archive. I'll commit it tomorrow
