I isolated the problem. It's in the Config tests. I believe this commit
introduces the issue:
It's related to the addition of the Config checks to the test/Jamfile.v2:

import ../checks/config : requires ;


[ run config_build_check.cpp : : : [ requires int128 cxx11_constexpr cxx11_user_defined_literals ] ]

I'm curious why this addition creates this issue? Could someone explain?

And could you please fix it?
My attempt would end with removing of 'requires' and this is probably
not how it should be fixed.
