I'm currently traveling, so I only have access to the Internet
intermittently. My replies may be delayed. Sorry.

The rule for previous Boost releases was to mark failing tests either as
"expected failures" or as "unusable libraries". Since it didn't make
much sense to me to mark them as "expected", I marked them as
"unusable", but the drawback is that they indeed don't show in
regression testing anymore.

I never got Borland free tools (and bjam) to work correctly under Wine,
so a real support of Borland compiler is a bit out of my reach. However
I will gladly accept any patch that makes the library works with this
How are the tests with your patch applied? Are they clear? If they are,
I will remove the "unusable" flag so that the compiler appears in the
regression logs again.
