Subject: [Boost-build] How do I skip one test?
From: Kuhl, Brian (brian.kuhl_at_[hidden])

The last test in boost/libs/timer/test/Jamfile.v2 runs; /boost/tools/inspect.
'inspect' is non-starter for VxWorks; it uses popen()/pclose() which I don't have, which it uses to access an SVN client, which is unsupported as well.

It's a cool little test, but it doesn't makes sense for my cross-compile environment.

(I'm still struggling with the test rule syntax,) how do I skip this one test when: <target-os>vxworks ?
