Subject: [Boost-testing] question about "stale" tests

I've observed that the serialization library tests fail on lot's of
platforms even though they seem to pass on similar configurations on my
The changes I've made don't provoke re-build of the library and the tests
don't explicitly depend on the files changed. (I'm not sure how to specify
such a dependency in a jamfile). The DO depend on some of these files but
since the file name is specified through a macro, I don't believe that bjam
is seeing the change and hence not rebuilding the tests. I did change one
test....cpp and if fact it started to pass.
Is there a way that I can request that all the *.cpp files in the the
libs/serialization/test be "touched"?
