format doesnt use regex, nor shared_ptr, and I suppose it's not the only
lib using std iostreams, though it seems format and ios_state are the
only libs suffering from this unwanted pthread linking problem.
ios_state and format share some similarities : they both are linked
statically (for the same reason : metrowerks needs to link statically
when using <locale>), use some streams, and use boost_test_exec_monitor.
Could this be a bad combination ?

hmm, I'd prefer not link for multi-thread for every compilers just to
work around this problem. (format is probably not thread-safe, so
compiling it with <threads>multi might induce people in error)
Is it possible to supply different build requirements for different
if so, I'd like to make format tests link dynamically (except for
metrowerks), and see if this gets rid of the problem with intel-7.1 .
