Cool, then. How about adding a builtin rule "ABSOLUTE <target> ;". It just
turns on the absolute flag in the target, like NOTFILE and others do.

Totally agree with your Yucks :-)

So a "BIND <target> ;" builtin then it is.

Which means that then the following is possible:

[ if PWD is /home/user/something ]

PROJECT_CONFIG ?= project-config.jam ;

Prints "/home/user/something/project-config.jam", if it's found.
