So I get the same error message about no boost-test lines encountered
(see below). Looking in results/bjam.log I see loads of lines like
this which clearly contain boost-test.

boost-test(COMPILE_FAIL) "config/no_void_returns_fail" : "libs/config/
boost-test(RUN) "config/no_void_returns_pass" : "libs/config/test/
boost-test(COMPILE_FAIL) "config/no_wchar_t_fail" : "libs/config/test/
boost-test(RUN) "config/no_wchar_t_pass" : "libs/config/test/

and then the tests start running. So what I'm confused is which
python file is emitting this message? I can't find where this message
is coming from.

*****Error - No "boost-test" lines encountered.

Any idea who's generating this error?
