I think the EXIT rule causes the whole run to stop, not just your
jamfile. Other libraries with a similar issue generally run the
configuration first, and then declare the library and tests inside a
conditional. But you really need to ask on the build list about this
if you want to know any more.
It might be more 'declarative' to have a dependency which acts more
like a build failure if the requirements aren't available, but I don't
know if that's possible.
