You should be able to do this:

        exe hello : hello.cpp ;
        run-output hello.output : hello ;
        time hello.time : hello.output ;

The first metatarget just builds exe, as usual. The second runs the executable
(capturing the output). The third records the time spend to run the executed.

You might need to 'import testing ; ' on top.

I am not aware of such.

Hope this helps,
