In looking at the Mac OS (Darwin) regression tests to see why there are so
many failures, a number of tests are failing with only this message:

/usr/local/boost/boost/type_traits/is_float.hpp:22: warning: use of `long
double' type; its size may change in a future release
/usr/local/boost/boost/type_traits/is_float.hpp:22: warning: (Long double
usage is reported only once for each file.
/usr/local/boost/boost/type_traits/is_float.hpp:22: warning: To disable
this warning, use -Wno-long-double.)

There are two odd things about this:

1) This is just a warning so why is the test being reported as failing?

2) The darwin toolset specifies CFLAGS : -Wno-long-double, so why is the
warning even being issued?

Any ideas? (I can't test because of lack of access to the platform.)
