You can use the 'build-dir' project attribute, described in

for example

: build-dir /tmp/my_build_dir

This is not 100% satisfactory solution, e.g. if building from read-only
medium, you can't tweak Jamfile so that binaries are placed to read-write
location, but might work for you.

Thanks for pointing out... need to figure out where the link target has
gone ;-)
