Subject: [boost] Setting up a test suite

I've got two implementations of the same functionality I want to compare with Boost.Test.
One's in C++ (natch), the other in Python.
Currently, they're packaged as tools that take a file as a parameter, and write results to stdout.
Call them "dumpinfo.cpp" and "dumpinfo.py".
How would I use Boost.Test to compare the output of these tools for a selection of sample tests?
Conceptually, I would do:
g++ -o dumpInfo dumpInfo.cpp
./dumpInfo testFile > /tmp/c.out
python dumpInfo.py testFile > /tmp/py.out
diff -q /tmp/c.out /tmp/py.out
But how to do this using Boost.Test?
* I have several (many) test files. It would be nice to list these files in a Jamfile.
* There are a couple bugs in the Python packages I am using. I need to mark some of them as "expected failures"
Thanks in advance!
