>From my limited perspective, it appears that a glob that recurses through a tree (that I would call FIND-GLOB) would best be implemented through a new builtin primitive. Would you agree? Semi-ironically, there already is a GLOB-RECURSIVELY built-in, but it doesn't recurse the tree as needed.
I tried building bjam (on CYGWIN) with --debug in preparation for work on this but unfortunately this causes bjam to fail an assertion:
assertion "self->size < self->capacity" failed: file "strings.c", line 20
Is this a known problem?

there's half-solution already:
install dist : dir1/file.hpp dir2/file2.hpp : . ;
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
