I'm not in a project Jamfile, I am in a tool Jamfile that has a type
generator and a corresponding action. You are right in that I am
looking for something that will provide the same effect as manually
adding an <include>/a/b/c to usage-requirements, but (1) the end user
should not have to do this, the tool should automagically do it for
him/her, and (2) the <include> path is dependent on the system's IDL
installation which could change so I'd rather not have it hard-coded
in project Jamfile files.
