Subject: [Boost-build] trouble with test-suite
From: Jonathan Brannan (kickace_at_[hidden])

I have a simple Jamfile with just this:
import testing ;

test-suite Simple_String_Compile_Fail_ut :
  [ testing.compile-fail Simple_String_Compile_Fail_ut.cpp /boost//headers ]

and a blank Jamroot

When I run Simple_String_Compile_Fail_ut
I get :
error: No best alternative for ./Simple_String_Compile_Fail_ut
    next alternative: required properties: (empty)
    next alternative: required properties: (empty)

I've looked at the Jamfiles in boost that use this and it seems to
work with the same syntax. Is there some magic in my Jamroot I need?
