Thanks for a reproduction recipe. The problem is rather hairy:

root --+---- intTest
|---- util
|----- boostTestUtils

You run bjam in intTest and Jamfile in boostTestUtils invokes
get-cpp-source-files. The location of boostTestUtils relative to bjam
invocation directory is:


after globbing you get


which you pass as the source to "lib" rule. But the lib rule assumes that
sources are given relative to the source directory of the project where lib
rule is used. But when you're in boostTestUtils dir, there's no


file! Jam has some sloppyness that allows the cpp file to compile ok, but the
code which looks up targets gets confused.

The solution is to strip directory in in get-cpp-sources:

return $(prjFiles:D="") ;

But wait a minute! I'm making a change which will add 'glob' function to
Jamfile context... done. Simple

exe a : [ glob *.cpp ] ;

works now.
