Ah, yes.. In that respect macros make build systems life very difficult. As
it totally kills any hope of determining binary compatibility. Boost Build
totally ignores them in that respect. And it becomes a problem for the user
to deal with. Which in turn propagates to package managers as consumers of
the build system products.
