Copying contents of 'Tools' folder of a package to another folder on the development machine

I have a solution that relies on a large group of files (headers, lib's and dll's) being present in some folder on the build machine. Currently, before we begin a build, we run a script to copy all necessary files to the right place so that all the projects in the solution can find what they need. I packaged all logically related files into solution-level nuget packages.

Is there a way to copy the package contents to the right place before a build begins?
Perhaps we could only copy the files when we want to using the Package Manager Console?
