Yes. The easiest way is to create a file named Jamroot in your third-party
project, containing this:

        project whatever ;

    make : [ glob *.c ] : @invoke-make ;
    actions invoke-make

Of course, you have to adjust the name of the created file and the list
of sources to taste. The list of sources is only used to decide when
to re-run make.

Does this help?
