Hi !

I'm having problems with a custom build variant since yesterday.
Using CVS, of course ;-)

I've got two projects a and b. Project b depends on project a.
Project a declares a custom build variant:

# define develop variant without NDEBUG defined
variant develop : <optimization>speed
<runtime-debugging>off ;

used for my projects.

Until yesterday, I was able to refer the build variant from project b.
This no longer works.
When running bjam from project-b I get:

error: 'develop' is not a valid for property specification

Full testcase attached. Only project-root.jam missing ;-)

Is this a bug or a feature ?
Did I abuse V2 by not defining my variant in user-config.jam ?
