Hi. I'm looking for a way to get BoostBuildV2 and Aegis to cooperate a
little more. I'd like to configure Aegis not to use symbolic links but I'd
need a VPATH-like mechanism in BBv2. I was able to put something in place
for sources using $(SEARCH). When it comes to derived targes though I
cannot use $(LOCATE) (the problem is similar to the one described in

Here's what I'd like to achieve: When checking which target should be
rebuilt, BBv2 would use the first file it can find, say, along
$(SEARCHPATH). If the file needs to be rebuilt, it would be put into

Is there any kind of mechanism in place for doing something like that? Is
it something I should put some effort into?

Any piece of advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance,

Andre Hentz
