Does this mean you were able to run the whole test suite in default(debug)

I'm believe that one can do this from the bjam command line and I'm sure
its easy, AFTER you search around the docmentation. I like the the bjam
system its really indispensable for something tlike this this BUT its
torture trying to find out how to use it. It seems that everything
one needs to know is spread all over my system and the web as well.

my experience was the everything built and linked but crashed on run. A small
change, but a bitch to find.

I believe there are errors in basic_binary_(i/o)archive.hpp . I will correct this
an test for inclusion in draft # 13.
