alias stage ;

Alternatives (to avoid every Jamfile having to define this):

As you have the paths to the Jamfiles, you _could_ make a regex search for
e.g. "^\s*install\s+stage" (not sure if this exact regex works with the
Boost.Jam regex engine). Hackish, but workable. As a variation you could add
your own unique tags somewhere inside the Jamfiles to mark file as having a
stage target.
