Boost-Build :

I'm considering moving a project I maintain from make to
and have encountered what seems like a relatively simple problem: I'd
like to be able to specify the name of the files created by exe rules.

For example, I'd like to be able to do something like:
   exe myExe : myExe.cpp : <name>fooBar.exe ;
and be sure that the output file from this rule is name fooBar.exe, no
matter what system I'm on or what type of build I'm doing.
Then when I do a rule like:
  install testExecs : myExe ;
I will end up, again regardless of system or build type, with the
file: testExecs/fooBar.exe

Is this possible?
