BTW, I committed today a changed to expected-failures-markup.xml that
removed some expected failures for the Boost.Threads gcc-on-sunos case. The
code used to link with -static, which didn't work since there are no static
versions of some libs. But it looks like you or someone else fixed it to
just name archive libraries using fully-qualified paths and now the tests
compile and run OK. This is on the RC_1_33_0 branch.
