Subject: [Boost-build] Generate files to a specific place

This is a bit classical request. Iâm trying to tune CORBA project
where IDL files are used to generate CPP and H. So it was quite simple
to have a proper implementation of such generator that didnât care
about where to place the generated files (see the attach). Until I
needed to include generated headers from other projects.
Well, you say, use <implicit-depencency>, and the BBv2 will know where
to find those generated headers. Thatâs true, but should I really take
care of this manually for every dependent project??? Thatâs the hell.
Iâve been looking for a way to put generated files to a custom
directory, but Iâve found nothing. Having spent few days, I couldnât
implement that on my own. Please help me; how to customize the output
