as far as I understand, and have verified through testing, the alias rule
only adds a local alias (i.e. it can only be used within the same Jamfile).
I've been trying to reuse an alias within a project hierarchy without
success, e.g. (from the manual):
alias threads : /boost/thread//boost_thread : <link>static ;
Is there some way to access the alias "threads" from sub-projects? I'd like
to ensure that all projects within a hierarchy use the same build settings
for some common libraries (if they use them).
