Is it currently possible to nest a complete, seperately compilable
project inside a boost.build project. Say I have a library, foo, that
can be seperately compiled using boost.build. I use a "externals"
facility to get a given revision of foo into a nested externals or
vendor folder under a project that uses foo.
| + jamfile.jam
| + *.cpp
| - *.hpp
How would you do this with Boost.Build? I tried the naïve approach and
get bitten by an error along the lines of "warning: rulename
$($(project).attributes).get expands to empty string".
