Are you referring to the install in boost-root/Jamfile.v2?

It's likely I'm missing something :-)
Is it possible to have built targets staged to a common top level dir
without having that dist-* target in a subproject? This is something
that lib authors added to BBv1 as a user convenience. So that they could
cd libs/whatever/build, and build only that library but still have it
someplace convenient instead of in the variant subdirs (bin.v2/..).
