Right. Do you think it is better to put that in the .jam files instead?
I do not know exactly what is computed when we arrive at this point: are
those expanded commands from the rules?
BTW, is it possible in the .c code to call commands from the .jam files?

This is not clear to me what happens between this declaration and the
failing "fopen" we are referring to. If at some point relative paths are
used, the test you are proposing would not tell us anything.
