I'm trying to right a centralised install-like rule using the stage rule,
but am running into the problem that the stage rule seems to always take the
path specified as being relative to the current sub-project path, and
prefixes the path with $(TOP)/$(SUBDIR)/ *even when the path specified is an
absolute one*. Is there any way around this, and/or is there any variable
in bjam that points to the project root from the sub-project path (note not
the same as $(TOP)), so that I could then "undo" the effect that the
$(TOP)/$(SUBDIR)/ prefix has.
ps: Rene are you working on a boost.install rule as well?
