That's not going to work on non-Unix filesystems. I know you are only
doing this for Unix use but consistency of interface is important :-)
You need to make it handle the "\" path separators at least. But ideally
you should change boost-base.jam to save the names of all the libraries
so that you can read that list after the install-subinclude call. It
already does something like that for what "[ install-sources lib ]"
returns. So you could add an "[ install-names lib ]".
