Subject: [Boost-users] [boost-build] building dependencies that use makefiles
From: Mauricio Carneiro (carneiro_at_[hidden])

I am using boost-build to build my project, but I have added a static
library as a dependency that is built using GNU make. If I build this
library manually, I can link it to my project in boost build using this
simple Jamfile:

lib hts
  : <link>static <file>lib/lib.a
  : <include>lib_headers

Is there a way to tell boost-build to run make on the directory if the
lib/lib.a is not present there?

Thank you,

Mauricio Carneiro, Ph.D.
