Ah, got it ;-)

It would be a good thing, IMO. But not for those that don't want it ;-] For
example those people using Boost.Build for non-Boost building.

What this suggest is adding support in Boost.Build for specifying standards
conformance levels for the toolsets.

But for now I would suggest you change the multi_array tests to add that
flag, that is if you think it's important in this case. Taking one of your
tests as an example:

    [ run libs/multi_array/test/constructors.cpp
        : : : <intel-linux><*><cflags>-ansi ]
