Well, yes,sorry ;-) I was wondering how the path must be specified.
If I use Win32 backslash, weird things happen.
I get -I"E:Librarieslix" as command argument.
If I use slash as path specifier, I get -I"../E:/Libraries/libx" on
the command line.
Seems to be an unsupported or unimplemented feature, right ?

Yes. I'd like to add something like <include>$(LIBX_ROOT)/include
or use-project /libX : $(LIBX_ROOT)/src to the Jamfile.
That means resolving of environment variables.

Ah, I see. I'm running vcvars32.bat while starting up the cygwin-bash.
Could this cause problems ?
