We're really looking for someone to take on the task of running regular
regression tests for that compiler. A good start would be to check the
boost.config to see how accurate it is (see the boost config docs for
instructions on testing the config). After that it's a case of trying the
libraries you want to use to see if they build or not - all the boost
libraries come with some fairly strong regression tests, so you should be
able to work out quite quickly where there are any problems.
