Not currently. The individual tests can run in parallel. To give you that
number we would have to save the information as part of the regression data
and sum it up as part of the regression reports.

Binary search manually? You can limit what tests you run on the command
line by using the "--include-tests" b2 option <>. So
start off by only running tests for [a-m] or [n-z], then [a-g], and so on.
Until you find the time hog.

Other than that, maybe it's one of the libraries tested on Travis <>. And maybe check the length of those
first if they are long on Travis perhaps they are also long on regular
