Ah, I see, you've been making changes to the tests. I believe that

should be relatively straightforward to figure out, provided you are familiar with
CMake. The full syntax of `boost_test` is

boost_test( [TYPE type] [PREFIX prefix] [NAME name] [IGNORE_TEST_GLOBALS]
  SOURCES sources...
  ARGUMENTS args...
  COMPILE_FEATURES features...

but I don't think you need anything besides COMPILE_DEFINITIONS. This for

[ compile arithmetic.cpp : <define>BOOST_PP_LIMIT_MAG=512 : arithmetic_num_512 ]

translates to

boost_test(TYPE compile NAME arithmetic_num_512 SOURCES arithmetic.cpp COMPILE_DEFINITIONS BOOST_PP_LIMIT_MAG=512)
