thanks for running the tests!

On Linux line 624 in boost_1_36_0/boost/test/impl/execution_monitor.ipp
should be temporarily changed like I did on Solaris (not sure if you did
this?). SIGCHLD is otherwise handled by Boost.Test which will then report
an error. I guess this is a problem on all *nix platforms (except Cygwin;
it could be that Boost.Test doesn't handle signals on Cygwin?).

As the test cases try to start a program "helpers" shared libraries
"helpers" depends on must be found. You might need to set and export
LD_LIBRARY_PATH before you run the test cases. If I'm not mistaken I had
to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/ somewhere, too. The current
environment variables will be used by all test cases (thus LD_LIBRARY_PATH
will be defined when "helpers" is started). You can check if this is a
problem on your computer by starting "helpers" yourself (the executable
should be somewhere in
