The --remove-test-targets bjam option seems to have shrunk things down a
bit. I'm not hitting the size limit anymore. It looks like we're down to
30GB/compiler from 60GB.
This solved my problem, but if we could have less churn on keeping
unnecessary object files, tests would run quicker (I believe that they are
usually disk IO limited, especially on windows). I'm not sure what if any
other solutions there are to this.
