You probably want "project myTools : build-requirements
<include>includes ;". That will affect your sub-projects' builds.
"requirements <include>includes" affects everything that *uses* the project.
You don't have to. Many of mine don't. I mainly use it when I want to
apply a build or usage requirement to all of the targets in the Jamfile.
