That doesn't seem right to me. Note that status/Jamfile contains

# Make tests run by default.
DEPENDS all : test ;

in order to make this happen. We could use that in the each of the
libs/xxx/test/Jamfile's. The idea is that you should be able to
declare tests in a Jamfile without having them built by default.
