LOCATE_TARGET should do it. How are you setting it? For example,
LOCATE_TARGET on whatever$(SUFEXE) = won't affect the intermediate
files which built the exe. If you have multiple subprojects, I posted
a simple $(SUBDIRRULES) a while ago you can put in your Jamrules which
gives you msdev-like behavior. It sort of breaks the spirit of Jam
(take any Jamfile project and send output anywhere without modifying
the Jamfile), but it's probably what you want.

No. The stock rules already did that for you.
