Read user-config.jam from Jamroot folder instead of $HOME and $BOOST_BUILD_PATH

Matthew Herrmann-2
Hi All,

Is there a way to read user-config.jam from the same folder that
boost-build.jam and Jamroot reside in, before searching for them in $HOME and
$BOOST_BUILD_PATH?

$BOOST_BUILD_PATH points to within our boost installation, which is
site-specific, and the $HOME folder is user-specific. We'd like instead to
have our toolset configurations over time version controlled in parallel with
our source, and not store site-specific config underneath the boost folder
tree.

Any ideas on how to do this?

Thanks in advance,
Matthew

Sorry, just worked out there is no need for this, as I can embed the
project-specific settings like "using gcc : : ccache gcc" in the Jamroot file
and everything will work the way I need it to.
