cd into /libs/type_traits/test/ and run:

bjam mytoolset

to build and run all the tests: no need to even add your new tests to the
Jamfile, they should get picked up automatically :-)

You will have to make sure that "mytoolset" has been configured in your
user-config.jam, oh wait, since this is in the sandbox also make sure that
the environment variable BOOST_ROOT points to a copy of the full boost tree
as well.

Honestly, I'm not sure :-(

Normally we have one per trait, each with the same name as the trait, I'd
rather stick with that unless there's good reason not to.

HTH, John.
