I guess that E:\Library\libX\src contains Jamfile with some libraries. Then
you can write it like this:

project

lib X : x.cpp ;

Now, every target which refers to X will get proper includes

exe a : a.cpp @/libX/X ;

The tutorial section in boost_build_v2.html describes it. Or have I
misunderstood you?

Also, could you clarify the question about LIBX_ROOT. Do you mean using it
to tell where the library is located and do 'use-project' on that location?
