I think that "test.obj" only works because it's the exact path of low level jam target. AFAIK, such
targets are identified by their build path, not the the source path basename + .obj. If you want to
address obj targets in such a way, you do need to use the obj metatargets explicitly. May I ask why
you want to do be able to build only a single obj?
