boost build supports working with pkgconfig, which could provide some basic
support for that functionality, irrespective of the build system used.
pl see http://old.nabble.com/Picking-up-options-from-pkg-config-
td22825647.html. I can't see nabble.com right now but its in top 4 results for
googling "boost-build pkgconfig"
I am not too familiar with cmake but AFAIK, every project needs to ship cmake
files in its installation so that cmake can discover the correct build
settings. pkgconfig supports similar goals and is already there on most linux
installs and supported by many libraries.
Of course, that does not cover windows situation at all.
