   Hi all.

   Anyone know anything about the Boost Jam/Build bug referenced in
related to needed to manually add a Jam level dependency between targets
connected using a dependency Boost Build property? (Quote to search for:
'We are almost done, but we should stop for a small workaround. Add the
following code to msvc.jam').

   We are currently attempting to set up a feature whose value should be
an additional source file for the target its specified on (generated
using a custom generator that knows how to make use of this feature).
However, setting the dependency attribute to that feature does not seem
to work. On the other hand, everything does work fine if we add
workaround code similar to the one in the aforementioned documentation
page for our generator but this just feels wrong... :-)

   So, anoyone have any insight about this (hmmm... maybe the person who
wrote the documentation page :-)) or should I just dig in and research
it myself?

   Many thanks.

   Best regards,
