I don't think you're going to find much support for that here. We
mostly have no investment in bjam except inasmuch as it supports the
development of Boost.Build (and some of us would really like to kill
it ;->) Most of us never knew what the old Jambase rules did, and
among those of us who did know, many have forgotten.

The location of built targets is determined by the LOCATE variable set
"on" the target. I hope that helps, because it's all I've got.
