Subject: [boost] Invoking a library's build//stage ignores --stagedir?

Let's suppose that for some random reason I want to stage Boost.System into
c:\stage with the current directory being outside the Boost root, which is
Dimov>b2 -sBOOST_ROOT=c:\projects\boost-git\boost --stagedir=c:\stage
This doesn't work. Or rather, it works, but stages into
C:\projects\boost-git\boost\libs\system\stage, ignoring the --stagedir.
I have no idea why. I tried to debug with -d+7, and BOOST_STAGE_LOCATE is
set correctly from --stagedir, but then Boost.System is staged to its local
Does anyone have an idea what's wrong here?
