Anyway, it'd be nice to have bcp come bundled with the boost libs -
it's in the tools directory already (next to bjam)...
#------ snip ----
#build bcp
cd $startdir/src/${pkgname}_1_32_0/tools/bcp
mkdir -p $startdir/pkg/usr/bin
install -m755 $startdir/src/${pkgname}_1_32_0/bin/boost/tools/bcp/bcp/gcc/
#------ snap ----

bcp is basically a boost version of pkg-config... it copies needed
src/header files into the project when using boost. it's nice to
have. I put the snippet above just after bjam build script.

there's other utilities, but I don't think any are really useful for
users of boost (they're dev tools for checking the library and crap
like that)

This task depends upon
