Yes, everything still works OK except for the compiler_status step:
# STEP 6:
# create the html table:
echo generating html tables:
$compiler_status 'c:\data\boost\develop\boost' cs-$uname.html
if test $? != 0 ; then
echo "Failed HTML result table generation."
In this case $compiler_status is just the path to the (vc7.1 built)
executable, and my code is ripped right out of the sample script.

OK that's good to know.

Well it's no use as it is, I'm sure that at one stage the source path was
added automatically (some compilers search this path anyway, but not all).
