You'd have to add a copy command before the actual compiler call. 
Something like this:

Rule {
     prepare: {
         var commands = [];
         // copy source file
         var cmd = new Command("cp", [input.fileName, 
         // now the actual compiler call
         cmd = new Command("g++", args);
         return commands;

Instead of calling cp you can use a JavaScript command and copy the file 
via File.copy in a platform-independent way, if you want.
