I think he mis-copied. Mine said something like:

     unknown dependent target <libs!test!build>libprg_exec_monitor.lib

Umm, from running "bjam test" in the status directory. Where else do
boost regression test results come from?

Why don't you just do a grep through the boost sources for your old
library names? It seems as though, if you're going to change the
library names, it should be easy enough to fix up all the Jamfiles to
work with the new ones.
