I see no problem here.
generators.register-standard foo.step1 : FOO : BAR : <toolset>foo ;
generators.register-standard foo.step2 : BAR : PDF : <toolset>foo ;
tool --step=1 $(>)
tool --step=2 $(>)
pdf abc : xyz.foo ;
When you build this the following commands will be executed:
# This will produce xyz.bar and a lot 'junk' files in bin/debug
tool --step=1 ../../xyz.foo
# This will take xyz.bar and a lot 'junk' files from bin/debug
# and produce xyz.pdf from them
tool --step=2 xyz.bar

If the current directory is 'bin/debug' it is exactly the place where
those files should be created.

It seems we are talking about different current directories. What is

Well you always can call the same tool 3 times from single actions block.
