Hi Rodrigo,

Thx a lot for sharing your work here.
There's a small typo error in the file you're providing, one should remove
the trailing semi colon at line 161 because everything in an action is
supposed to be shell executable ( so no semi colon here ).

I have an issue with this generator though.
I can't get back the auto-generated header.
Let's take the example you posted. The source messages.proto will generate
two files messages.pb.h and in the build directory at compile
time but myapp.cpp will likely reference messages.pb.h within an #include.
So the auto-generated header should be reachable in a way.

I tried using the install rule but it didn't work, I'm still discovering
Bjam and Boost.Build framework so it's hard for me to figure out how to do

How did you overcome this issue ?

PS : I already sent you a private email but I think it's better to have a
public conversation so eventually I subscribed to the Boost.Build mail list.
