Could you please to to file "project.jam", line 611 (in rule 'use-project')
and change it to read
project.use $(id) : [ path.root
[ path.make $(where) ] [ $(attributes).get location ] ] ;

then go to line 313 of project-root.jam and change it to read

project.use $(id) : [ path.root
[ path.make $(location) ] [ project-root get-location ] ] ;

And try again. If this works, I'll commit the change when my connection to boost
CVS is back (it's down at the moment)
