If you are talking about Boost.Integer library as a whole, not just about test fixed in changeset above, I don't know if the library is ready to be merged into the release. The library fails on many platforms on the trunk, including at least one release platform -- RW_WinXP_VC10 -- and the failures are not a link failure, which was the case on the release branch, but compilation errors.
