What I'm trying to do is to let the user select which dependencies the
library would have based on some information given by him.

All that I could do until now was create a rule and importing it to
the global module.
This rule creates a new target on the current project, this is an
aliasing for the configured project.

This is a GUI library, it can use GTK/win32/qt (it is not ready yet,
this is part of a refactoring to allow use of these toolkits). But I
wanted to allow the use of one and even more than one at the same
time. So I created a manager in middle of this that redirects and
manages which "driver" (the toolkit) to use.

The syntax that I could achieve yet is:

client jamfile ---

gui.configure gui_library : static : win32 ;

exe client : $(sources) gui_library ;

There's only some problems with naming and directory builds for the
library files that I'll see if I can correct.

Do you have a better idea to solve this?
I can't use the "using" syntax because it is not a toolset nor should
be distributed with bbv2, but I wanted something just like that for
configuring it. But I also need to be able to configure something
locally to that project alone.
