Subject: [Boost-build] replacing the **passed** rule (fixing quickbook testing)
From: John Maddock (john_at_[hidden])

The quickbook tests currently all fail because it's Jamfile creates a "run"
rule for each test, but as each test uses the same executable and the "run"
rule deletes the executable if the test passes: so the first test passes,
and all the others fail because the .exe was deleted by the first test :-(

I've tried everything I can think of to fix this, but no luck so far... the
obvious fix is to replace the "**passed**" rule from testing.jam with one
that doesn't delete the .exe, but if I add my own version of this rule to
quickbook-testing.jam then it appears not to be called?

Any better ideas?

Thanks, John.
