Well, I'm concentrating on Boost.Build issues. The rest looks nice.
Please find some improvements to you current setup attached.

Uses <threading>multi to enable multi-thread support when compiling a
multithreaded program.
Uses <toolset>gcc to control gcc-specific flags.
Adds library requierements to the test so both Boost.Xint and Boost.Test will
be automagically rebuild if needed. This also pulls in "BOOST_TEST_DYN_LINK"
as a usage-requirement of Boost.Test shared library.
Uses "run" rule from Boost.Build test runner to run tests.
Separates tests to singles files, need xint.1.diff to add "BOOST_TEST_MAIN" to
each file. (I've replaced "DYN_LINK" with "MAIN" )

I've renamed test/Jamroot to "Jamfile" due to my local setup. It would be best
to not use a "Jamroot" in libraries.
If you need more help, please fell free to contact me.

Impressive work, I think I can use it...
