I commented in the pull request, but I'll post it here as well to gain
more attention.

Boost.Test explicitly provides a header-only version which previously
did not require linking with any other libraries. Adding Boost.Timer
as a link dependency looks like a bug to me and should be fixed in
Boost.Test rather than in user libraries. I wonder when that
dependency appeared and whether it can be reverted easily.

Obviously, it was not the case not long ago.
