Step 1 find the project root location, In BBV1 I do:

PROJECT_ROOT = [ find-to-root [ PWD } : $(JAMRULES) ] ;

In BBV2 you can do the simpler:

PROJECT_ROOT = [ project-root get-location ];

(If I remember correctly you can do that last one in any context, project or
project root)

And you probabably only want the last part of the name to append to your
ALL_LOCATE_TARGET top level path...
