Leaving the Spirit issue aside, there is a problem I described elsewhere whereby
several static libraries fail to build with the Borland 5.8.2 compiler since the
switch to Boost.Build v2 . I only became fully aware of this very recently: as
it didn't show up on the regression tests I had attributed it to quirks of my
own setup. Moreover as I used to look for build errors by grep'ing for
'[Ee]rror' in the bjam output I missed the fact that this actually doesn't
involve just testing, but also building the libraries.
I hope to be able to look into this as soon as the Spirit issues are solved.
