For what its worth - and just to keep the pot boiling - I use VC IDE
for building and testing the serialization library. I only use boost
build for generating the table of results for all the compilers.

I did have to setup a very large VC solution with a project for each
test and variations for archives, etc which was a huge pain. But
it is very convenient now that I have it setup.
