OK, but you probably test not all files. Have you tried my simple
boost_check script or did you wrote a own script to test *all* files?

It's hard for me to believe that you can use wrong namespaces, include
non-existing files, ... Maybe the compiler will indeed not complain if
the code is not instanciated, don't know.

PS: How about a mini Linux system in a virtual environment? There are
much more possibilities to create such an environment in Linux (chroot,
UML, qemu, xen, bochs, and many many more) but there should be a
solution also for your system.

PS2: Whouldn't it a good idea if Boost could allow developer access to
a Linux server? I strongly assume that e.g. the web pages are self hosted on
a Open Source platform.

No problem. It is really great that you nevertheless support it.

Mmh, I assume it is jam stuff which I never used myself. I wonder about
 -I"C:/mingw/include/c++/4.1.2/backward" -I"C:/mingw/include/c++/4.1.2"
 -I"C:/mingw/include/c++" -I"C:/mingw/include"
shouldn't it be in the default compiler search path?

Maybe you should also add -pedantic (and -Wno-long-long if it complains
about long long?).
