I tried using $(SUBDIR) in templates, but get very strange paths out of it.

Using $(SUBDIR)/.. in a template in c:/project/exe/Jamfile

1. Executed from c:/project/ results in Server/Server
2. Executed from c:/project/exe results in ..

I think the second result is ok, but the first is incorrect or at least I
did not expect it :-).

My goal was to factor out our standard includes in templates. My first
option was to declare these includes paths relative to the c:/project. I
did not succeed at that so I resorted to paths relative to the executable
directories, which are always directly under c:/project.
