Still does not work - I tried this btw:

error: Unable to find file or target named
error: 'common_headers'
error: referred from project at
error: <somepath>

So my project hierarchy looks like this:


I'm calling bjam against myproj/liba/Jamfile which calls build-project
subcomponentA ; etc.

I'm assuming that all sub projects in my hierarchy inherit
requirements from Jamroot right?
