You can put this in Jamroot:
constant JAMROOT : $(__name__) ;
sed "s_at_PREFIX@$(INSTALL_PATH)@g" $(>) | sed "s_at_NAME@$(DAEMON_NAME)@g" > $(<)
rule your-install ( DAEMON_NAME )
alias install : install-bin install-conf $(INSTALL_PATH)/scripts/$(DAEMON_NAME) ;
install install-bin : $(DAEMON_NAME) : <location>$(INSTALL_PATH)/bin ;
install install-conf : ../../conf/$(DAEMON_NAME).conf : <location>$(INSTALL_PATH)/conf ;
make $(INSTALL_PATH)/scripts/$(DAEMON_NAME) : ../../scripts/rc_script.freebsd : @$(JAMROOT).transform-script ;
and then have:
your-install some-daemon ;
inside Jamfile for each component. Does this work?
