I emailed Marshall about this a couple of weeks ago. There is something
wrong with the cs-Darwin.html file. If gcc toolset failed a test then that
test is marked failed for the darwin toolset too but the fail on the darwin
toolset isn't an html link. Also of the gcc toolsets tests are marked as
Fail but they aren't links either.

I agree with you that Marshall needs clean the target directory and rerun
the regression.
