Ouch, but this doesn't look like it does it. It looks like it
searches within BOOST_ROOT or BOOST_BUILD_PATH. The other thing is I
see a lot of stuff that I'm positive isn't really documented.
I guess a more simpler question is can I somehow force the generation
of one binary to a certain location so I can reference it for my tool?
Or is there a way to get access to the current build path of whatever
build variant I'm using (cause it changes depending on
