If by "autolinking" you mean the mechanism of linking to external libraries by
means of including their headers, then yes, this feature is not present on

I don't know, since you haven't said what you want to link to. If that's
boost.test, then:

        using /boost : <path-to-boost-source-tree> ;
        unit-test my_test : my_test.cpp /boost//boost_unit_test_framework ;

should work.
