The Jamfile isn't really designed to support it.

  You can set them in user-config with the 'project'
rule. The only problem is that they will be used
for all builds of everything, regardless of whether
they're actually needed. I suppose that you could
put a project-config.jam in the directory of the
ssl example. This will be used only when you
run b2 in that directory.
