Subject: [Boost-build] hierarchical install ?
From: Avi Bahra (avibahra_at_[hidden])

I have a directory hierarchy. In some of my sub directories I have exe
that i want to install. In the jam file I have:

install install : client : <location>$SMS_INSTALL_DIR ;
explicit install ;

So if I am in that directory I do:
bjam install

hey presto, everything works.

However I now want to do the same thing at the top level.
If I do bjam install at the top level, i get:

notice: could not find main target install
notice: assuming it is a name of file to create.
don't know how to make <e>install
...found 1 target...
...can't find 1 target...

Is there an easy way to get bjam to install hierarchically ?
