Comment (by stefan):


 I have modified tools/build/v2/tools/docutils.jam, and I can in fact see
 changes when I run 'bjam libs/python/doc', just not all, and just not with
 the effect I had hoped I would see.

 In particular:

 * Into the 'init' rule, inside 'if ! $(.initialized)', I added:

         RST2XXX = [ common.find-tool rst2html ] ;
         ECHO "init: " $(RST2XXX) ;

   but that didn't print anything.

 * Into the 'html' rule (after the RST2XXX definition) I added:

         ECHO "rst2xxx: " $(RST2XXX) ;

   which only prints 'rst2xxx:', i.e. no value.

 * Into the 'actions html' block, I added:

         ECHO "$(RST2XXX)"

   which generates an error '/bin/sh: line 1: ECHO: command not found',
 unless I invoke bjam with '-n', in which case the error disappears. (It
 still prints the '/usr/bin/python2.7' value that it seems to get from the
 (wrong) assignment in the html rule above.

 Thanks for your help,
