Hi Mark,
there's half-solution already:

  install dist : dir1/file.hpp dir2/file2.hpp : <install-source-root>. ;

will install all files while preserving directory structure. On the other
hand, there's no "fully recursive" glob. Patches welcome ;-), but if you
don't have the time right now, can you please file a bug report at
