Done. I hope I fixed all HTML references.

We should reconsider whether and how we want to check in the compile
log files.
Binary files are not storage efficient with CVS's "save the latest
version in full and incremental text diff's for the older versions".
For each checked-in binary file, CVS basically stores each version
in full. 10 check-in's of 20 KB is 200 KB already, and we expect to
run the regression tests rather often. On the other hand, the
non-compressed log files are 200-500 KB.

Is there possibly some non-version controlled place we could put
the log files and add a link? The log files are only really
interesting for developers and not for boost users, because the
error messages of the compilers usually require an advanced
understanding of the inner workings of the boost libraries.
