#7596: process_jam_log - --locate-root doesn't work as advertised
 Reporter: ramey | Owner: bemandawes
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: To Be Determined | Component: Building Boost
  Version: Boost 1.52.0 | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: process_jam_log |

 I've found that --locate-root doesn't permit one to build/test a library
 outside the boost root directory. I've made changes to support this and
 tested it locally on my own projects. I can't really test it on the whole
 boost regression testing on my equipment. So I'm a little bit in a

 I'm attaching the patch with my changes. I hope you can consider rolling
 them in.

 The intention is that it the changes don't change the functioning of the
 code for current usage. However, I'm a little at a loss with the library
 name function. The problem occurs when there is a "sublibrary" file. I'm
 still looking at this.

 My motivation is that I really, really need to be able to run this program
 from outside the boost directory. This is to support the current project
 I'm trying to finish - "Help for Boost Library Authors - Simple Tools -
 Build and Test". www.blincubator.com . Basically this is a effort to
 make it easier to make quality C++ and Boost libraries and support
 "modularization" of boost. I've invested a lot of effort and hope to be
 able to finish up these sticky bits. I've shown my effort to a few
 cohorts, and response has been unenthusiastic. As always, I'm not
 disuaded and have invested too much effort to bail now. So I hope you can
 help me with this one sticky detail.

 Thanks for any help you can provide on this critical point.
