Well, I just changed the name back and my project failed to build. I
added a path constant in my Jamroot.jam that the boost jamfile.v2
doesn't see, for whatever reason. I was trying to build a separate
project that uses boost, so it wasn't that I was in the boost directory
and it didn't see my Jamroot.jam.
I hadn't thought of trying to modify ARGV to change the build
directory. Sneaky, but in a good way. :->
To the developers: would it make sense to have a "default-build-dir"
that is used if the parent doesn't set it? That way, people could build
boost outside the source tree without having to remember to add
"--build-dir" to their bjam calls (or use a script/alias/batch
