Oh, perhaps you don't like bin/debug/...
Then the solution is to set the build-dir option in each separate
Jamfile explicitly as, for example, you can see here with the product
[ Jamfile ]
: build-dir $(foo-builddir)
and in the site-config.jam or Jamroot, etc.. define the variable foo-
builddir so that the path you desire is set on a per product basis.
For example, in your Jamroot you might have
[ Jamroot ]
constant foo-builddir : $(builddir-arg) ;
where builddir-arg might be the --build-dir option off the command
line with a suitable default if the option's not specified.
Here's what one of our product (gtest) bin directories looks like
I'm not sure if that's of any help.
