I just modified it so that by default, they're deleted after they run
successfully. This only deletes top-level targets (executables most
of the time, shared objects for Python tests), so object files sit
around sucking up disk space. You can turn this behavior off by
adding --preserve-test-targets to the bjam command-line.
I did this after running out of disk myself ;-)
