For the installation I'm currently trying to use package.install, which
takes a 'headers' argument. However, it appears as if these headers are all
installed in the same directory (irrespectively of their relative

headers from
/my/source/tree/include/boost/python/... into
/my/install/prefix/include/boost/python/... ?

I think the feature is called install-source-prefix.
You'll need to set it to the base directory whose
structure you want to kepp. In this case, probably
use <install-source-prefix>/my/source/tree/include
and set the install location for headers to

That sounds good, though I'm not sure how to translate that into 'code'
in my Jamfile. Can you point me into the right direction (an example
Jamfile would be useful !) ?
