I'm looking at the boost-install rule in Boost's Jamroot file.
For Boost.Python I'd like to use a modified version of that which
installs the headers itself, rather than doing it via a dependency. (I
was searching for "install-proper-headers" but couldn't find it. Any
So, I define
headers = [ path.glob-tree $(SELF)/include/boost : *.hpp ] ;
error: The patterns to 'glob-tree' may not include directory
which I don't understand, as the glob-tree rule appears to be defined to
take a 'roots' argument which is a (directory) location.
What am I missing ?
What is the suggested way to install headers, while preserving their
directory structure (relative to some common prefix) ?
