It would be nice if we could have a file that defines path constants (say)
so that it was the only place that would need to be patched. All explicit
path references throughout the Jamfiles need to be changed to refer to these
One could then have, for example,
BOOST_INCLUDE = $(BOOST_ROOT)/include
BOOST_LIBS = $(BOOST_ROOT)/modules
BOOST_STAGE = $(BOOST_ROOT)
If Boost.Build itself could then be moved from tools/build to modules/build,
all will be well.
