Just curious, what are the paths to debug and release output in your legacy
system? In what way "build-dir some-path" does not work?

Answering your question, you can't get 'mode'. Jamfile is read only once, and
build request can include debug,release,profile and a bunch of other
combination at the same time.

Maybe, you can use the 'stage' rule to move the generated files to the
directory you like?
