Actually, it's not currently possible. There is a disclaimer some place
in the bjam docs that mentions that the header inclusion dependencies
are calculated *after* the build dependencies. I.e. they are done at
make time, which is too late to add build targets.

Hm, the closest explanation I found explains the overall bjam operation
