Gennadiy, I've now tested this change with VC 6, 7, 7.1, 8 and Intel 9.1 and
there are no regressions in Boost.Test. I've also confirmed that it fixes
the serialisation failures.

The change I made was simply:

Index: boost/test/test_tools.hpp
RCS file: /cvsroot/boost/boost/boost/test/test_tools.hpp,v
retrieving revision
diff -r1.60.2.1 test_tools.hpp
< struct BOOST_TEST_DECL equal_impl_frwd {

> struct /*BOOST_TEST_DECL*/ equal_impl_frwd {
Is this acceptable to commit?
Thanks, John.
