Subject: [Boost-build] Identifying target-name in jamfile

How does Boost Build identify a target-name in a jamfile ?

If I pass /some_project_name//some_target_name as the name of a target
in a jamfile how does Boost Build recognize the 'some_target_name' in
the project 'some_project-name'. Does it just look for a rule in the
particular jamfile in which the mnemonic 'some_target_name' can be found
? Is it possible to pass an on-the-fly rule invocation itself as the
target-name ?
