This is strange. Why do you prepend source dir? I suspect that it won't work.
Say, you have
If this happens in child Jamfile, when building from top-level dir this will
be translated to something like.
Concatenating it with "subproject1/subproject2/build/../src (the source
location) will give:
which is likely to be wrong.
Either we need to decide that <include> should be treated relative to source
location, and not Jamfile location (no opinion yet), or you'd have to use
Note also that source-location can contain several directories, which
complicates the matter even more.
