It isn't even close to working.

a) The unit-test rule doesn't work with the
   regression test system, and the syntax is
   different from run.
b) requirements <library>... only works in
   the project declaration. For targets,
   leave out "requirements"

I've modified it so it at least doesn't crash
the trunk regression tests.

If you make changes to the Jamfiles, you really
need to test them before committing. It shouldn't
take more than a minute.
