It's defined in build/virtual-target.jam, method file-target::path, line 495
in the current CVS. Unless you specify 'build-dir' project attribute, the
project path with "BIN" attached is used.

Could you clarify this last problem. Do you mean you can "libNAME.lib" as
part of the name? Are you sure you are using v2? A quick test is whether
you see "<toolset>.compile" messages (V2) "**-Cc-**" messages (V1)?
