I would, but currently updating my tree fails (`Write failed: Broken pipe'). 
Your Jamfile (not yet visible via anonymous CVS, but in the CVS mail :-), 
looks quite OK at the first glance; I would replace the LOCATE_SOURCE by a 
SEARCH_SOURCE, but I wouldn't completely rule out, that it might work as is 
(though SEARCH_SOURCE is correct here).

What does jam say, when you do a `jam libkernelppp.a'? If it doesn't even try 
to link, it should tell you something like `skipped libkernelppp.a due to 
lack of XYZ'. The `XYZ' would be of interest and the reason, why it is 
lacking. Jam should give reasonably clear hints on what's going on.

CU, Ingo

PS: The location of the code is a bit strange (`src/tests/kits/net/ppp')...
