It does, and I consider this a feature. Writing a Jamfile or two is trivial
(if indeed your library is a bag of source files and it doesn't need to
f.ex. link to OpenSSL or detect AVX-512 at configure time.) Refusing to do
so is a deliberate slight.

Same would apply to CMake by the way; having a submodule-friendly
CMakeLists.txt should be a requirement, and will indeed also increase the
barrier of entry. So far, 0% of the libraries having a CMakeLists.txt file
have been usable as a submodule.
