Every end user who is not sure whether his configuration is supported by a
particular library can run the tests. This is generally done by invoking
'bjam' (or 'bjam --toolset=foo' if the default doesn't work) in the
directory containing the tests, for example libs/smart_ptr/test. One can
also use 'bjam shared_ptr_test' to single out a particular test. The
resulting output could've been friendlier, and the whole procedure better
documented, of course.

In a perfect world typing 'bjam' (or possibly 'bjam show' or something
similar) in a test dir would cause an HTML page with the results to be
launched in the default browser. :-)
