Subject: Re: [Boost-build] Configuring the include path for a toolset

I tried to use <include> in the jam file, as part of the toolset definition,
but it didn't work - maybe I didn't do it correctly.
Here's how I tried to do it:

using android : x86 :

But the <include> directive was ignored - the include directory did not
appear in the compilation. Should it be placed outside the toolset
definition (maybe above it)?

It works fine when I provide it on the bjam command line using "include=",
but since this include path must be specified whenever I use this toolset,
I'd like it to be specified as part of the toolset.
