Nothing exists yet; I've recently been working out how to do that
myself, so when I'm done I'll try and write up a quick tutorial (of
course, the recent changes in CVS may have made my work obsolete, so it
may take me a few days to get it right).

You can use the pwd rule for the first:

rule myrule
local mypwd = [ pwd ] ;

See new/path.jam. For the second, from what I can see, you can call
get-location on the project root.

rule myrule
local rootdir = [ project-root get-location ];

See new/project-root.jam.
