You mean, you don't read them where they appear on boost-testing anyway?

Can you please post your *entire* xxx-config.jam so I don't have to
piece it together from the Trac ticket and your amendments on this

I have hardware I can use. I could probably replicate your set-up, or
at least, enough of it to see the problems you're experiencing
