I think we can walk over problem you have and solve them one-by-one.

When I just try to build your testcase on Linux, I get this:

  /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lboost_unit_test_framework-mt-gd

That's because your definitions for boost test do not specify the paths where
the library is to be found. Yes another issue is that standard Boost build
does not create "-gd" targets on Linux, I get just "-d". I've changed your
test/Jamfile to read:

  lib boost_unit_test : : <name>boost_unit_test_framework-mt-d <variant>debug
        <search>/home/ghost/Work/boost-rc/stage/lib ;
  lib boost_unit_test : : <name>boost_unit_test_framework-mt <variant>release
        <search>/home/ghost/Work/boost-rc/stage/lib ;

After that, I've run into a small bug -- the "unit-test" rule does not
property set run-time library search paths. The bug is now fixed, and you can
get the fixed version from CVS, or at:

(though the latter is painfully slow at the moment).

If you report further issues, or you had different issue to begin with, I'll
take another look.

Thanks for your patience,
