An update on this:

the above does work as long as there is only one install target in the
Jamfile, as soon as there is more than one then it fails as noted before.
Also if there are more than one install targets, something like:

install dir1 : files1 ;
install dir2 : file2 ;

Then both file1 and file2 end up in dir2, is this a bug?


PS, if I place the install target with the <name> first it also builds OK,
but then fails if there are more than one such install targets :-(
