Boost-Build :

I agree with the change to use "cp" instead of "cp -p", especially for
headers. However, when I stage static libraries on darwin, the linker
requires me to run ranlib on the .a files before it will link an
executable because the timestamp has changed. If I change back to "cp
-p", it works fine.

So, I guess we need to preserve timestamps on static libraries or run
ranlib on them after copying them (darwin only, to the best of my
knowledge). What's the best way to handle this?
