I did a quick inspection of the build using --debug-building with both a
standard an a combining generators. It seems that the
<implicit-dependency> property on the app target is missing (lost) when
using the combining generators.

IOW, with a standard generator I get
<implicit-dependency>object(file-target)@204 build properties and that
property does include the build path.

I have been looking at generators.jam and targets.jam to see why I get
different results depending on the generator class but any idea where I
should be searching are welcomed !
