Thanks, that worked!

The build runs to completion, and tries to execute the resulting exes,
which fails, since they are Windows CE exes. I think the other lines in
VeecoFTC's user-config.jam somehow plug the WM5TestLauncher into the
boost test infrastructure so that it downloads the exes to an actual CE
device (or maybe an emulator).

I manually copied the files to my emulator and called CreateProcess on
them. That fails with GetLastError 126, "The specified module could not
be found". "dumpbin /imports system_error_test.exe" shows that
system_error_test.exe links to msvcr80d.dll. Do you know of a way to fix
