> Hi Rene,

 you're using the SHELL command and, to the best of my knowledge, SHELL
 doesn't call execcmd, it goes directly to /bin/sh.

 The test uses SHELL to call bjam again so it can pass in the correct
 options, i.e. it's a recursive execution.

> So my question is, should I add support so that -lx works correctly for
 SHELL as well?

 No. You can run the test individually if you want with:

 bjam -f option_l.jam -sBJAM_SUBTEST=1 -l2

 The build action should fail. For me it's intermittent. Sometimes it
 works, but most times it doesn't. So I'm not sure how to replicate this.
