Boost-Build :

I store several prebuilt libs in the cvs repository of my project.
After checkout, I want to set the absolute paths to these libs in
boost.Build-v2's prebuilt target rules. To do that I need to
determine the current project-root directory of the local checked
out copy of my project.

I tried this in the Jamfile located in the project-root directory:

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

and it resulted in this error:

/path/to/project-roots.jam:368: in project-root
warning: rulename $(project-root-module).project-root expands to empty

What would be the correct way to get the project-root directory path?

Many thanks & very best wishes
