If you define PATH_BUILD as 'path-constant' it automatically becomes
an absolute path. But the project definition you have shown does not
influence the path used for sources - it uses PATH_BUILD only to set
the target location of object files and the dependency on Jamroot. Can
you show how you define your 'lib' or 'exe' targets? Do you use
PATH_BUILD there as well? If the relation between your
Jamroot/Jamfiles and sources location is fixed you can specify
relative paths in lib sources (or in project source-location
property). Or if it's too long/complicated you can define normal
constant or variable containing relative path to your sources.
