Boost-Build :

I read the documentation, and it says that to define a header-only lib, I
just list the headers as sources so that boost-build knows which files to
track for changes. That works fine, except that when an executable refers to
the header-only lib, I get a link error because it is attempting to link a
lib file which does not exist.

I understand that if I refer to the lib only through <use> and not through
<library>, I won't get link errors. But that is not ideal -- what if I add a
cpp file to the lib at a later time? Ideally, I'd like to setup my jamfiles
so that if I add a cpp later, I don't have to go through and edit all
jamfiles that use the lib.

Is there a way to achieve this?
