You can add usage-requirements in the generator's run rule.

class idl-generator : generator
    # ...
    rule run ( project name ? : property-set : sources + )
        # ...
        result = [ $(project) $(name) : $(property-set) :
$(sources) ] ;
        return [ property-set.create <include>some/path ] $(result) ;
