Boost-Build :

I've got a strange one-off generator that I don't know how to deal with in
bb. In gnu-make, it would be expressed like this:

OUTPUTS=a.c a.h b.c b.h

        make_tables $(INPUTS)

"make_tables" is the code generator, a perl script. The names of the output
files are hard coded into the script, and it can take a number of inputs of
various suffixes.

I tried to express it like this:

rule MT { Depends $1 : $2 ; }
actions MT
        make_tables $(<)

exe mytest : a.c ;

But it complains about not being able to find "a.c". Perhaps I'm not
allowed to mix classic Jam with bb? Any suggestions on how to go about
