I'm now inclined to think this is a design problem. If a generator produces
just H target, and it's used as part of building a main target, we should be
able to detect dependency on that H target.
I've filed an issue:
but unfortunately I might not be able to address it at least until July 1. It
might be reasonable to use the same trick as qt4.jam uses in the meantime.
