Subject: [Boost-build] Library search support?

I'm looking for library search support functionality - similar to
- autoconf's AC_CHECK_LIB/AC_SEARCH_LIBS/AC_CHECK_HEADER
- CMake's FIND_LIBRARY and FIND_PATH.
These are quite essential parts of **any** mature build system.
I need this for Boost.Locale build - search for ICU.
Note: Boost.Regex ICU's library search is quite broken because it searches
for release version of ICU even under debug MSVC builds.
Also the general approach is quite wrong (search for specific files for
each platform is bad).
Any progress with it, any chance to get it in Boost-Build?
