Right, the trick is to add:

[ check-target-builds my_config_check : : <build>no ]

To either your project's requirements, or each test target requirements,
then those tests get skipped when the target "my_config_check" fails to
build, you can also use this to inject specific build options only when
"my_config_check" succeeds.

HTH, John.
