I have the same problem for a long time.

The next time I try to make the bjam V2 work on my setup I would like to do
the following:

In my case its wide character support (also spirit support). Here is what I
plan to do.

a) make a small compile only test which passes/fails depending on the
existence of
wide character support.

b) make all tests which are relevant to wide char support dependent on the
test in a) above.

c) My test matrix display program leaves blanks in cases where there are no
results - which is just fine by me.

i have the same issues regarding support for spirt and dlls which are

In fact, I'm even wondering if I should not bother testing which depends on
other tests passing. For example. Variant serialization depends upon
a working variant implemenation. So the the serialzation tests for variant
can be skipped if the more basic tests of the variant library fail. Of
for this to work in a smooth way - the variant serialization should be moved
from the serialization library to the variant library where it belongs. But
another problem.
