The simplest way is to

copy ../test-config.jam project-root.jam

since project-root.jam is empty for this test case.

I've modified the tester to be more robust. It used to crash when we check
content of a file which does not exist. I think I know why the test failed --
it tried to define type 'RC' which is already defined by 'msvc.jam'. I've
simplified the test and changed the type name, so it should be working now.
Could you rerun the tests when you get the changes?
