Hello, the latest changes or Boost.Test on the trunk make MSVC++ 6.5
choke on just including <boost/test/included/test_exec_monitor.hpp>, with
the following:

...\boost\test\impl\execution_monitor.ipp(883) : error C2061: syntax error : identifier 'uintptr_t'
...\boost\test\impl\execution_monitor.ipp(1045) : error C2039: 'strerror' : is not a member of 'std'
[the rest deleted as it does not look interesting]

Th strerror problem is simple to fix (see attached patch). As for unitptr_t, AFAIK
this is not a standard C++ type, and <boost/cstdint.hpp> does not provide an alternative,
so I don't know what could be done without further contextual info.
Gennadiy, if you want I can locally test any changes you provide me with in MSVC++ 6.5
so as to try to remedy these problems.

Thank you,
