That would be the way.
You can pass input files to the `run` rule:
run my_cmake_test.cpp : : myfile1 myfile2 ;
If these are targets, they will refer to files in the bindir; if not, to
source dir. Relative paths are relative to the current Jamfile.
I'm not sure if you could do
run my_cmake_test.cpp : : my_cmake_test ;
to obtain a path to my_cmake_test.exe though. It would probably be easier to
infer the directory corresponding to where the test executable is placed
from argv (but I haven't tried that this works.)
If not, you could perhaps use a dummy obj target
obj cmake_test_obj : cmake_test_source.cpp ;
run my_cmake_test.cpp : : cmake_test_obj ;
