Not surprisingly, this works with gcc-4.4 on linux.

msvc-9.0 complains with

BOOST_ROOT\boost/test/impl/unit_test_main.ipp(175) : error C2491:
'boost::unit_test::unit_test_main' : definition of dllimport function not
BOOST_ROOT\boost/test/impl/unit_test_monitor.ipp(61) : warning C4273:
'boost::unit_test::unit_test_monitor_t::execute_and_translate' : inconsistent
dll linkage

and so fails to build the example for me.

The main mistake is that you link against the Unit-Test library and use the
"included" variant at the same time.

Either removing the dependency on the library and adding the include paths
with <use>:

project test
  : requirements

alias test :
  [ run test1.cpp
  ] ;

or changing test1.cpp to #include the library header only:

//#include <boost/test/included/unit_test.hpp>
#include <boost/test/unit_test.hpp>

will fix this. Otherwise, you get _serious_ UB.
