I don't understand. --dump-tests is intended to
be used by the automated regression test system.
All is does it to print a list of test cases.
I've never used it for my own tests.

The log should indicate which tests failed
and the output from them. What more do you need?
If bjam just says:
"...found 7263 targets..."
it means that all the targets are up to date
which implies that all the tests passed.

I expect it to work too, and it does for me.
Can you reduce this to a small self-contained
project that I can look at?
