Okay, that's weird.
Here's my Jamroot
local build-directory = [ MATCH "^--builddir=(.*)" : $(ARGV) ] ;
build-directory ?= bin ;
project : : : build-dir $(build-directory) ;
builds in the bin directory as it should. Unfortunately,
bjam --v2 --builddir=junk
also builds in the bin directory. Anything obvious I'm doing wrong?
