In my Jamroot, I need a list of all the exe targets defined anywhere
in the nested Jamfiles. I want to do this so I can have a top-level
list of all executable targets to install without asking the user to
enumerate each target explicitly. Our directory structure is
arbitrarily named by the user, but the Jamfiles are never more than
two levels deep. It's easy to get a list of all the nested Jamfiles

local cwd = [ PWD ] ;
all-jamfiles = [ glob */Jamfile */*/Jamfile ] ;

But I can't see how to grep each Jamfile to get a list of the
executable targets without writing a custom scanner. I tried this

all-executables = [ MATCH "^exe (.*)" : $(all-jamfiles) ] ;

which only greps the Jam file name, not the Jamfile contents. Any
ideas how to accomplish this?
