Can you please provide us more information? Did you try running b2 with "-d+2"
to get the full commandlines involved? It might be that the arguments to
"testing.launcher" need some more escaping and/or windows "\" path separators.
The feature itself works fine, I'm using it on linux for test runs under
valgrind. Some sample code would be fine, too. I could then try to do some
cross testing on obscure arm or even Raspberry Pi.

I fear this is hardcoded into gcc.jam. But this can be disabled for Android,
if necessary.

Well, do not get me startet on cmake ;-) It has got cross compiling support
only recently. And it is a meta-buildsystem.
