Boost-Build :

The documentation:

suggests the following:

Target reference is used to specify a source target, and may
additionally specify desired properties for that target. It has this syntax:

target-reference -> target-id [ "/" requested-properties ]
requested-properties -> property-path

For example,

           exe compiler : compiler.cpp libs/cmdline/<optimization>space ;

but when I define my own free feature <antlr-name> and my own generator
for .gl files the feature is not set. e.g.

lib antlr_lib :<antlr-name>SimpleLexer ;

does not set the feature in the property set that is passed to the
generator but if I do

lib antlr_lib : : <antlr-name>SimpleLexer ;

the feature is set.

Can you tell me what I am missing here?
