Unfortunately a lot of things in BB are not so obvios and can be easily

I do not have much time to dig into BB docs. I've tried to follow the link.

I've added

install common_location
           : output_test_stream_test
           : <install-dependencies>on <install-type>LIB

to the test/Jamfile.v2

nothing happend.

What should I write and where, so that for every unit test that is linked
with shared version of Boost.Test component the corresponding library that
get's build as part of unit test compilation is copied in some common
location, preferably <BOOST_ROOT>/stage?
