Yep - currently you need to disable auto-linking for bjam builds of test
programs - defining BOOST_WHATEVER_NO_LIB for those targets is the usual
method (assuming BOOST_WHATEVER_NO_LIB disables auto-linking in your code).

Rene - is there any way in which a test that is dependent upon say
<lib>whatever could actually be made dependent upon the staged and
name-mangled version of that library ?

As Rene has said,that only works from boost-root, just use:

or bjam stage
or bjam all

Sounds like some bugs - my paths don't have spaces in them :-)
