Thanks for the quick answer. I should precise though that what I really
want to do is to establish a dependency between my lib target and
my "prebuild" event (to use the MSVC jargon) which is copying the file from
dir X and dir Y. It is really establishing this dependency that I cannot
figure out how to do. Any ideas?

Can you please tell me where I can see the requirements?
