I looked at the status table and I think its very promising. There are
lots of tests that test different combinations. I tried to make each
test test the minimum amount of stuff but infact, a couple of problems
will make lots of tests fail. The first time I ran it with gcc I got 100%
failures !. However, I believe that many of the failures will be cleared
up with just a couple of changes. Looking at the status table, I would
bet that finding/fixing an error in the text_archive will clear up a lot of
failures. Then I would go for void_cast as its more self contained and
could explain the pointer failures. Of course finding the last problem
is going to be the hardest.

I am very excited about your success in this. Pavel Vozenilek [pavel_vozenilek_at_[hidden]] is making huge progress in getting
intel 7.0 / dinkumware to work which may well fix VC 6.0.

BTW - I think this illustrates how incredibly valuable is the boost
test/build concoction. The combination of two has really changed
my life.

Thank you for your efforts.
