Subject: [Boost-build] Issue in <include> relative path calculation when defined in <conditional>.

Hello guys.

I am replicating here the issue definition I posted several days ago at
Boost track tickets, *Ticket #7144
*( Please have a look at the
attach "hello2.tar.gz" if you take your time for bug review and its possible

*Description of the bug:*
For <include> feature, "path" attribute is not relative to Jamfile when
defined inside <conditional> of requirements. If <include> is defined
directly in requirements, everything works proper of course.

The issue is revealed when building project not from the directory where
Jamfile with <conditional> is located, but from other directory (so that
relative path should be calculated).

Attached reworked "hello" example from repository with "child_dir" subpart
which tries to include "folder_to_include" directory.
