Hi Ren,
can you send me a minimal self-contained project that reproduces this
behaviour? It could be a bug in Boost.Build, or it could be undersired
interaction with some other code in Jamroot you have no shown, or something
else, and it's hard to debug such kinds of problem without testcase.

In general, when reporting problems, where Boost.Build does not work the way
you want, sending a test project is always appreciated.
