In jam's src directory there's build.jam, that includes the following code:
# Put executables in platform-specific subdirectory.
locate-target = $(LOCATE_TARGET) ;
locate-target ?= bin$(.)vms ;
locate-target = [ .path $(locate-target)$(.)debug ] ;
locate-target = [ .path $(locate-target) ] ;
Can you add:
ECHO XXX $(locate-target) ;
after each assignment and see where the wrong name first appears?
