  The reason that this doesn't work is that .test_class_info_save
is not the name of anything recognized by Boost.Build.
The rule test-bsl-run_files seems to create many
targets with names derived from the given name.
If you want to refer to these targets as a group,
you can try this (warning untested):

alias test_class_info_save :
  [ test-bsl-run_files test_class_info_save ] ;

which should allow <dependency>test_class_info_save
to work.
