Boost-Build :

I wondered why the following causes a problem:

local mypath = somepath ;
lib foo : : <file>$(mypath)/Release/foo.lib <variant>release ;
lib foo : : <file>$(mypath)/Debug/foo.lib <variant>debug ;

lib otherlib : [ glob *.cpp ] foo : <link>static ;

bjam appears to complain about their being ambiguity "no best-matching
alternative could be found"

I've done a similar thing where I've got a separate project defining
pre-built libraries (for boost in fact) but then I refer to them from
other jamfiles using /project//target

Ideas? I've tried renaming the debug version, dropping the
"<variant>debug" etc but with no luck.
