Understood. But now that the toolset is working much better I'd also like
to see if we can fix any other problems, such as config issues.

Yes, looks nice. I changed my environment variables as indicated, and they
worked fine.

I'll try to trace where BOOST_NO_INTRINSIC_WCHAR_T is being set. I'm not so
worried about ADL, at least with VC++ <7.1.

The fresh regression tests are now posted. Here is what changed in the
Intel results, presumably as a result of the intel-win32 changes:

   New fails: config/limits_test

   New passes: lambda/exception_test
