This defined a rule (that is, function), that prints "$(name) all".

This calls the above rule, which prints "hello all".
What exactly are you trying to do? All main target rules work with "explicit"
out of box, and it's impossible to write main target rule what would ignore
Have you read extender manual already? It's
http://boost.org/boost-build2/doc/html/bbv2/extender.html and is the first
think you should do before adding custom main target rules.
