Subject: [Boost-build] project requirements in Jamroot --- how to make sure they propagate to sub-projects and other dependencies

I'm having some irritating troubles when I try to use


from my local Jamroot file. It seems like the macro is not defined
consistenly over all libraries (some in my sub-project, some in boost
libraries like Boost.Test) which, luckily, causes a run-time crash.
My file layout is this:


and then boost is installed somewhere else *outside* this path.

In my Jamroot file I have

import os ;

local BOOST_ROOT = [ os.environ BOOST_ROOT ] ;

project bayesian_engine
     : usage-requirements
     : requirements




Of course, I have more requirements, but they don't seem relevant.

The in a Jamfile.v2 I have

lib bayesian : [ glob ../src/*.cpp ] :
<link>shared:<define>DEZIDE_EXPORT=1 ;

[ unit-test a_star_search : a_star_search.cpp bayesian ]


I thought everything I specified in my Jamroot file would propagate to
both sub-projects and dependencies in Boost. I know _SECURE_SCL=0 is the
problem here since uncommenting it makes everything work again.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance
