   Do not know what 'dtrace' is and do not have the time to play around
with this, but here's the first thing that pops to mind...

   At first glace seems similar to how regular link generators
implemented. Why not implement a ( .d, .obj ) ==> ( whatever dtrace
produces ) generator similar to how link generators are implemented and
then simply build those targets that dtrace builds?

   Would that work?

   One possible problem with this is if 'dtrace' actually modifies .o
files in-place. In that case I guess one would need to define new target
type for 'dtrace modified obj files' and somehow tell Boost Build to use
those targets for linking instead of 'raw' ones. But if this is the case
then I'd really have to play around with this to get some more insight...

   Hope this helps.
