I'm not familiar with the make rule, but I did use the generator method
described in the BB wiki to use a built tool to transform something else.
Check this out and see if maybe you can translate it to your non-generator

If you can figure out what you can pass to toolset.flags for a
generator.action then you should be able to bind the name of the tool to the
action and invoke the one built in your output tree.
