Not sure. I'm not quite up-to-speed with printing code. It's possible to run
just one test with the --preserve option and it will put the failing setup
in dir 'failed_test'.

Then it's probably some Windows-specific issue with search paths. For a
start, can you create test/test-config.jam and add

   using gcc ;

there? If that works out, and there are no further issues, we can
investigate why your user-config.jam is not found.
