For what it's worth, I've found this to be a useful hack, since I build
freetype with bbv2, and it comes with its own Jamfile's. So, I just put
my own Jamfile.v2 in the freetype directory, and it uses that instead of
freetype's Jamfile. That way, I don't have to modify the freetype
distribution at all, which makes upgrading simpler.
