I tried putting the above in project-root.jam, but i get this error:

project.jam:321 in load-jamfile from module project
error: The value of the .current-project variable
error: has magically changed after loading a Jamfile.
error: This means some of the targets might be defined a the wrong

If I put the simple-lib rule in the Jamfile of the lib that invokes
it, then it works fine.

I tried to resolve this issue myself and I think few days ago I did
read something relevant in the docs but now somehow I can't find it.

And finally another question, I know the FAQ explains how to set
compiler flags per cpp file, however what I need is a bit more
complicated. I want a lib to glob for *.cpp and use common options
for all of them except for a few files which I need to NOT use a
compiler flag that all other cpp files use (in the particular case I
am addressing at the moment, I want to force ANSI conformance for all
cpp files except for the very few that happen to #include

Once again thanks a lot, you've been very helpful!
