Okay, that's weird.

Here's my Jamroot

        local build-directory = [ MATCH "^--builddir=(.*)" : $(ARGV) ] ;
        build-directory ?= bin ;

        project : : : build-dir $(build-directory) ;

bjam --v2

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?
