Boost.Build detects your library as being in the modular
structure and creates a link to your headers inside
the main boost/ directory. The problem is with this target,
which is why making everything depend on it forces everything
to rebuild. I have never tested what happens when mixing
the new layout with the old. When writing the scripts, I
assumed that it was either one or the other.
