You probably shouldn't use $(BOOST_ROOT) for this anyway. Wouldn't
local test-dir = ./ ;
work just as well? Or better yet, eliminating the use of test-dir?
: [ test-btl-lib run
: result_report_test.pattern ]
[The use of $(SLASH) is most likely unneccessary. Try just using
forward slashes in the future.]

if you insist on doing it this way, you can always force quotes:
local test-dir = \"$(BOOST_ROOT)/libs/test/test/\" ;
But I think I should probably handle this case in testing.jam. OK, done.
