What is the proper way to call an external make file from a Jamfile? The
following doesn't work for me:

make adder : : @make-adder ;

actions make-adder
  "make -f adder.mak build"

I get the following error:

error: target {
Jamfile</simple/common>%Jamfile</simple/common>.make-adder-adder. } has
no type

It seems like calling out to an external make would be a simple thing to
do in a build system. This has been really hard.
