Yes. Add a <build>no to the requirements of the test.

For the HP TestDrive toolset it would be "<tru64cxx71-006><*><build>no".
If you need to do some more complicated matching logic to determine when
to add the no-build option you'll need to use a requirement rule. See
the serialization test Jamfiles for an example.

Until I, or someone else, comes up with the code for doing it on Unix.
Yes that's correct.
