For test binaries which ran successfully? What's the use
of debug symbols in a test binary that did not produce
any errors? I'm not thinking of removing debug information
from test binaries which produced errors.

strip filename

Test results should be available within a few hours
(including Serialization. I removed gcc-3.4.0 from
the list of compilers. 3.4.1 is still present).

While tests are running, I'm seeing link errors
for Boost.Serialization:
/boost/head-regression/boost/boost/test/test_tools.hpp:179: undefined
reference to `pthread_mutex_destroy'

I think my installation of libstdc++ requires
-pthread on the commandline. Is this a Boost.Build
problem, a Boost.Serialization problem or do I just
have to add some options to my toolset definition
for gcc-3.4.1?
