Boost :

I believe what happened here was that the person who ran the test did not have the compiler specified in the user-config.jam, so the compiler was never called.

A sample way to fix this problem, would be to have the first test be for compiling and running a "hello world" type of program. Perhaps test 1) would be compile and run "hello world". test 2) would be compile and run a "hello world" where cout << "hello world" is in a shared library. and test 3) could be compile and run "hello world" where cout << "hello world" is in a staticly linked library. If any of these test fail, then there is a misconfiguruation of the system, and all test can be expected to fail. Therefore, an error message should be printed to the screen, and, should halt execution, without reporting results.

I discussed this with Valodia the other day in #boost. I don't know if he has done anything with the idea yet, so I wanted to put the idea out in the mailing list.
