Subject: [Boost-build] Alias falling through from jamroot to jamfile
From: Christian Auby (christian_at_[hidden])

Scenario: exe is defined in Jamroot, depends on two libs, one of the
libs depend on the other lib. They are placed like this:
I'd like to not have to use ../lib1//lib_awesome inside lib2 as the
Jamfile for lib2 would have to change if lib1 is placed somewhere else.
Inside the Jamroot I have an alias:
alias lib_awesome : lib1//lib_awesome ;
but it doesn't carry to the Jamfile in lib2. Is there a way to do this?
That way the Jamroot would be responsible of knowing where all the libs are.
