Subject: [Boost-build] Copying / referring to a test data file.

I am writing a unit-test which requires test data. I'm having a hard time
creating a good setup under which the test data file can be easily
referenced from my main source. The project hierarchy is:
Jamroot simply consists of "build-project Subproject ;"
Jamfile consists of
import testing ;
unit-test test-main : test-main.cpp ;
test-main.cpp opens the data file "test-data1.txt". If I build in the
Subproject directory, this file is found and everything works, but if I
build from the Project directory, then test-data.txt is not found.
Ultimately, I would like to somehow have test-data#.txt in the "sources" or
in some other target on which the test-main target depends, and have the
data files be copied-to or symlinked-from the location of the executable...
but I am unclear on how to accomplish this. Any suggestions?
