My workaround is failing on tests with longer names.
For example:

fails to be created due to some windows pathname limit.

Is there any way to supply parameters to the build without increasing the directory depth?

After a bit of fiddling I gave up trying to patch the jam files.
Since most of these tests for"NT" result in setting a parameter default value; my current workaround is to override on commanline
./b2 ... threadapi=pthread binary-format=elf abi=sysv

I'm open to any suggestion of a more elegant and extensible solution.

This one has been removed in develop.
