Your first mistake was right here:

Bad idea. Everything was set up perfectly already. Running "bjam test"
would have run the test case. If you want to see what it does, run
    "bjam -d+2 test"

> Apparently it sees the dll just fine

Why do you think so? It's finding the extension module but missing bpl.dll

Same problem here.
