Subject: [Boost-build] generate from file-reference ignore properties
From: Felipe Magno de Almeida (felipe.m.almeida_at_[hidden])

Is there any reason why generate from file-reference target ignores the
passed to it?

    rule generate ( properties )
        return [ property-set.empty ] [ virtual-target.from-file $(
            [ location ] : $(self.project) ] ;

I would like to be able to do:

jar my-jar : java/foo/<nested-class>SomeOtherClass ;

But since file-reference ignores the properties, the
<nested-class>SomeOtherClass is not passed along.
