Hi guys,
let me just make this clear before we start: Hubert's fix (adding a
`init_unit_test_suite' that returns NULL) works. That is, it enable
me to link against Boost.Test < 1.34.

I want the smallest code that compiles and links against the greatest
number of versions of Boost.Test. This test case should use the most
common headers of this library and must use symbols from the library
so that the resulting object file cannot be linked without having the
correct -lflag. I want this test to work with as many flavors/
combinations/versions of Boost.Test as possible.

Would it be possible for you to give me the smallest dumb code that
exercises the most basic feature of Boost.Test + compilation and
linkage against Boost.Test?
