Subject: Re: [Boost-build] Using the install rule with a pre-built library

I ended up solving my problem by generating the <file> feature using a rule,
which borrows the same bjam utilities that are used to generate
platform-specific library names. It's not pretty, but it got me there.

In case it helps anyone else, here's an example of how to expose a pre-built
library, which you can both link to, and also deploy using an install rule:

Obviously it can be tweaked to generate a different filename, depending upon
the address model and variant, instead of a path.
