Thanks! The bjam part is now running, but the post test processing is
failing. The failure is occurring in the Boost.test tests library. I won't
be able to look at it until late afternoon; the error message from the
post-processing program was less that helpful.
We need to find a way to better test changes to the test library because
failure in it cause the whole regression testing system to fail. Perhaps
all changes to Boost.Test should first go on a branch, and only be merged
when they have been tested with several compilers and operating systems.
