Boost-Build :

The problem is that I wanted to configure my editor so that its current
directory when launching boost-build is different from the directory of the
jamfile. The first thing I do in my build script is to cd to the directory
of the jamfile, but then the errors I get are relative to that directory and
the editor can't find the files. It's a minor thing obviously, I can just
keep everything in the same directory and it works fine, but if there is an
easy workaround please lmk.
