A few notes:
* Borland 5.64 release build is crashing inside the test library. See
my other posting today about that. Seems to be a codegen bug.
* Metrowerks: I added an additional macro that lets MWerks users use
// Everyone writes this
// People targeting MWerks can do this
This makes the tests pass on cw-8.3 and cw-9.4. The regression
table for Boost-1.33.1 shows the test_exported_xxxx tests passing on
cw-8.1, but I was unable to get the CVS HEAD to pass cw-8.3 without
the use of BOOST_SERIALIZATION_MWERKS_BASE_AND_DERIVED, so I figured
it wasn't my responsibility to make my update work with that
* It's unclear to me that BOOST_USED has any effect at all on whether
the tests pass. I suggest defining it to be empty for a while and
seeing what happens to the regression table.
* I didn't run all the tests in every configuration; that's simply
impractical. Robert, you need to make the library's testing more
selective; it's occupying vastly more testing resources than most
other libraries, and way more than required to effectively find
problems. It shouldn't be necessary to test the cross-product of
all tests with all archives and all build configurations.
