It seems that the issue happens only with combining generators. In the
included (failing) test case, if the foo generator is register with
register.standard it's working fine. if register-combining is used
instead then it fails (include file not found).
I take the opportunity to report a small mistake in the "invocation" doc
--ignore-config : Do not load site-config.jam or user-config.jam.
According to the load-configuration-files rule that should be :
--ignore-site-config : Do not load site-config.jam.
--user-config filename: Explicitly name the user configuration jam file
(default is user-config.jam). The file is looked for from the current
