You can see the result of the 'standard' boost regression tests here:

As you can see, there is only one test for the BGL and BCB6 fails it :¬
[Don't see the MPL tests there, and I haven't tried running them myself,
although I would be surprised if it works given symptomatic
type_traits/lambda failures]

I have compiled and run the tests in the first couple of chapters of the
BGL book from Addison Wesley, so certainly some parts work. Not
something I use yet, so can't comment on any necessary workarounds.

We use boost with BCB5 fairly successfully, if in a limitted way so
far. Looking at the fails on the chart I have BCB work-arounds for the
array test fails (doesn't like initialiser syntax) and format library
(recently posted to list)

We plan to move over to BCB6 at the end of December, and I may have time
to investigate some more BCB problems then. I'd be interested in
anything else you turn up in the meantime.
