During testing bjam is built and run like this:

# Starting tests
"-sBOOST_ROOT=D:\lib\test-boost3\boost_root" "--bo
"--boost-build=D:\lib\test-boost3\tools_bb\src" "--debug-configuration"
-l300 toolset=msvc-10.0 -d2 preserve-test-targets=off --dump-tests -m64
\test-boost3\results" >>"D:\lib\test-boost3\results\bjam.log" 2>&1)...

AFAIU if you just run (from BOOST_ROOT/status):

b2 --dump-tests

you should get similar results. So e.g. after running:

b2 --dump-test | grep 'geometry'

you should get the list of all of the tests which will be run for
Geometry. Currently only 2.
