If you have
    run mytest.cpp ;
(e.g.) in the Jamfile

you can run this test with

bjam mytest

You don't need to deal with this yet. The full regression tests are
controlled by status/Jamfile.v2 which just contains a list of libraries.

# run all tests
# run the first test
bjam trim

The fifth argument to the run rule is the name of the target.
The name defaults to be the name of the first source file.
Also, the test-suite is unnecessary. The StringAlgo Jamfile
could just as easily be written as

run trim_test.cpp : : : : trim ;
run conv_test.cpp : : : : conv ;
