Indeed, tracking source dependencies is not in the scope of qmtest.
However, since you can 'qmtest run suite', it's easy enough
to hook it it up with everyone's preferred build system. (I wrote my
test database implementation to integrate with the make/autoconf based
build system, and I'm sure doing a similar thing for bjam is equally
