Subject: [Boost-build] Output directories of Boost Build

Is there a general way to control the location of Boost Build output
directories, or are they always relative to the source directory, or
perhaps relative to the Boost top-level directory ?

I see that the output of library tests are written to a sub-directory of
my Boost top level directory called 'bin.v2'. I also see output files
placed in the 'dist' and 'stage' sub-directories of my modular Boost top
level directory. Are these locations configurable in general ?

I would like to share my Boost git repository between different Window
OSs in a multi-boot machine, using a common NTFS drive. But I want to
have the output from Boost build go to different local drives for each OS.

I could not find any doc in Boost Build that explains how it is
determined where the output goes so I am asking on this mailing list.
