Ah, thanks. I saw that page, but then I found a Jamfile in the
status directory and jumped to the conclusion that the web page
preceeded introduction of jam files. Silly me.

I have now built and run the regression tests.

Right. What I'm using is actually from the 2.95 CVS tree,
which is why "gcc --version" reports 2.95.4. I'm using the
compiler from the Debian "unstable" distribution.

Sadly, this compiler fails three tests more than what you
report for 2.95.3 on the boost pages. Thus, it looks like
I will need to build a new STLport library and see if all
the tests pass (as they do for gcc 2.95.3 + STLport).
