Uhm, I don't know what that means, yet. Can you add --debug-loading --debug-building
to bjam command line, see what is done before this error, and report that?

(Incidentally, Python port has a much better error reporting, and should
always report the line in Jamfile that is responsible for an error).

You go to 'test' directory, copy test-config-example.jam to test-config.jam,
configure your toolset there, and run "python"
