Message-ID: <47199DC3.4040102_at_[hidden]>

and the whole thread for the discussion leading to this.

test/Jamfile-v2 now marks all targets including "test" as explicit. So
it has to be explicitly called. Unfortunately, status/Jamfile.v2 simply

 build-project ../libs/test/test ; # test-suite test

and therefore builds _no_ targets.

 build-project ../libs/test/test//test ; # test-suite test

should build it again.

The right way is to remove "test" from the list of "explicit" targets in
test/Jamfile.v2. Else running bjam from that directory would still
build no targets...

Well, running the test suite from "status" would simply ignore the
explicit tests and result in no failures... :-(((
