Yep, upgrading bjam solved the problem.

Yep. Now it works fine. Thanks for fixing it.

Please find attached the test case. I changed your
test case a little, added toplevel jamfile which has
'build-project d ;' statement. Now if you do 'bjam'
from subfolder d it will create dist in root folder as
expected, however if you do 'bjam' from top folder it
will place dist under d.

I have one more question, completely unrelated to
current problem. Suppose I have a project consisting
of a few dlls, some of them linked directly or
indirectly with executable, while others loaded
dynamically. For those which loaded dynamically I want
to introduce dependency without actually linking them
with exe. So that every time I build executable all
the dlls it depends on got updated as well. Also if
this executable is a test then it is important to
update dlls before executing the test. How can I
express this in jam?
