Why would you want this? "../build" is taken relatively to file where it's
used (Jamroot) already. If you really want this, you can do:

path-constant HERE : . ;
project yours : build-dir $(HERE)/../build ;

If that's not enough, Boost's top-level Jamfile can serve as example.

install dist : whatever : <variant>debug:<location>debug

This won't handle differences in other build properties, though.
