Sorry, that was my bad. The AbsSymLink and RelSymLink -- which make the 
symlink depend on the `all' or `files' pseudo target -- are used by the 
installation rules. So, actually, all Jamfiles using the installation rules 
were broken.

I fixed this by adding a flag as parameter to the *SymLink rules specifying 
whether the dependencies should be created or not (defaulting to true and 
passed as false where necessary). Not nice, but in my eyes the fix with the 
least changes necessary.

I did not undo the changes made by Philippe a few minutes ago. He commented 
the invocation of the installation rules in the following files:


It should be save to revert that now, though.

Anyway, I'm sick and have a hard time to concentrate, so I disclaim all 
liability regarding my changes. I did a few test with things concerned one 
way or another, but you know...

Again, sorry for the inconvenience my mistake caused.

CU, Ingo

PS: There are still a bunch of libs that, for convenience, are linked or 
copied into /boot/home/config/lib by default. I didn't change that (not 
knowingly at least).
