That would be sufficient. However, I don't understand why that script
should modify BOOST_BUILD_PATH at all if that variable is already set.
(The same could be said about BOOST_ROOT)

That command doesn't result in that error, and the correct
test-config.jam gets picked up. Instead, I get:

error: Unable to find file or target named
error: '/boost/python//boost_python'
error: referred from project at
error: '../libs/python/test'

(I didn't specify a Python path)

I'll wait with further testing until the v1 tests that are currently
running finish. I expect them to finish within the next 2 hours.

I'll try to find out if something goes wrong in
