Thanks. I should be able to fix it using this info. However I have hit
another, but somewhat related, roadblock. Tried the documentation but
failed to find relevant snippets.
Using generators i have created these two custom rules
1) mp a : a.gp ;
which converts a.gp to a.mp
2) mps a : a.mp
which converts a.mp to a.mps
Invoking bjam complains "unable to find target a.mp". The problem is that I
am unable to specify that "a.mp is generated by rule 1".
In case i am missing something obvious please point me to relevant portion
of the documentation.
