I'd be happy to help out with the regression tests but currently when I get
everything from the CVS repository, then simply tell it to:

bjam "-sTOOLS=vc7 msvc vc71" >bjam.log

I get 32 things which fail:

...failed updating 36 targets...
...skipped 36 targets...
...updated 852 targets...

from the most recent run (8 hours ago).

all of the errors seem to be triggered by this:

    Creating library
and object
cpp_main.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "int __cdecl
cpp_main(int,char * * const)" (?cpp_main@@YAHHQAPAD_at_Z) referenced in
function "public: virtual int __thiscall `anonymous
: fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals

Any suggestions on fixing this would be helpful, and then what do I do to
actually run the regressions tests?
