I have have a project with Jamroot, which consists of some subprojects with Jamfiles.
In each Jamfile I have this block of code:

DAEMON_NAME = daemon_name ; #specific for each subproject

alias install : install-bin install-conf $(INSTALL_PATH)/scripts/$(DAEMON_NAME) ;
install install-bin : $(DAEMON_NAME) : <location>$(INSTALL_PATH)/bin ;
install install-conf : ../../conf/$(DAEMON_NAME).conf : <location>$(INSTALL_PATH)/conf ;

make $(INSTALL_PATH)/scripts/$(DAEMON_NAME) : ../../scripts/rc_script.freebsd : @transform-script ;
actions transform-script
        sed "s_at_PREFIX@$(INSTALL_PATH)@g" $(>) | sed "s_at_NAME@$(DAEMON_NAME)@g" > $(<)

explicit install install-bin install-conf $(INSTALL_PATH)/scripts/$(DAEMON_NAME) ;

Could anyone explain me how to move this block of code to Jamroot of top project?
