Subject: [Boost-build] Creating a "source zip"

Something I have been trying to figure out is how to create a source zip
Something which should be pretty straight forward but seems to be harder
then I expected.

My idea is to either copy all the interesting files and then zip the
directory or to zip the relevant files but I am not really sure how to
go about it.
In general I have trouble with the common.copy thing as it always
generates "recursive rules" so maybe that is the problem:

I started out like so:

all-sources =
     [ glob-tree *.cpp *.h *.hpp : .svn ]
for local l in $(all-sources)
     install $(l) : $(l) : source ;
     #make $(l) : $(l) : common.copy ;
     echo "Adding source for: $(l)" ;
     explicit $(l) ;

alias all-sources-targets : $(all-sources) ;
explicit all-sources-targets ;

alias build-sources : all-sources-targets :
<location>$(BOOST_STAGE_LOCATE)/source ;
explicit build-sources ;

but it does not work so I am open to ideas...
