Ideally, I'd like to run tests for all the libraries that were built. Still running on demand for each library I need is just fine. Will try your suggestion.

There is a Jamfile.v2 in the directory "status", which seems to trigger quite some test-suites. So calling bjam inside the directory "status" will probably compile (and run) quite a lot of test-suites.

But I guess this is not what Pedro really wants to do. It's more likely that he is just interested in the unit tests of an individual boost library. The test-suite of an individual library can be build by calling bjam inside the corresponding directory, or giving the corresponding directory as an argument to bjam.
