Subject: [Boost-build] make rule with extra variables + figuring out the full target path

I am using the make rule in the following fashion:
make my_target_file :
my_command "$(>)" "$(<)"
However, I would like to introduce an extra variable to include in the command.
my_command "$(>)" "$(<)" $(EXTRA_VAR)
In order to do that I thought of doing the following after the make statement:
$(EXTRA_VAR) on my_target_file = "SOME VALUE" ;
however, this is not working since I am not able to retrieve the correct path of
my_target_file. My questions are:
1. Is there a way to get that path?
2. Is there a better/cleaner way of doing what I want to do?
