I don't know what you mean by "know about the header directory". If you
want a.lib to be compiled with include path to b.lib, then I'd use:

   lib a : .... : <include>../b/whatever ;

Normally, I recommend usage requirements:

   lib b
         : # sources
         : # requirements
         : # default build
         : <include>whatever ;

   lib a : b <some other sources> ;

However you say that a should use b's includes and b should
use a's includes. Such circular dependency between Boost.Build targets
is not allowed, therefore you'd have to use <include>whatever for
your a and b targets.
