Subject: [Boost-build] how do I create a new bjam target?

Dear Boost.build experts,
I have a problem with bjam, that has been troubling me for a week. I would
like to add a new compiler support to bjam. This compiler returns the same
object file as gcc (compatible). Now, I have declared a rule called
rule my-rule ( name : source ) ...
and somewhere in it there is a
NOTFILE $(name:G=e) ;
do-nothing $(name:G=e) : $(so) ;
when I call the rule in the jamfile
my-rule npink : src/some_src.cpp
nothing happens. If I launch
notice: could not find main target npink
notice: assuming it is a name of file to create.
and then COMPILES the target. However I CAN'T make anything depend on this
exe some_executable : npink ;
DEPENDS npink : some_executable ;
or no-rule and their any variation is completely ignored by bjam.
Can you please help me out with this?
Thank you in advance
