Subject: [boost] [math] Help needed porting to AMD64/Linux platforms

I'm still having trouble with some failures that appear to be specific to
Linux on AMD64, if anyone with access to such a platform can help me out I'd
be most grateful.

You can test whether your machine exhibits the issue by:

cd into libs/math/test and
bjam gcc test_hypergeometric_dist1

If that fails, then I'm looking for the output from the following program to
try and track down the cause of the error (caution this will be quite

#include "boost/math/distributions.hpp"

int main()
   double x = 30520, r = 130605, n = 130605, N = 523360, p =
1.315394088731268169855067478460234e-53, q = 1;

   boost::math::hypergeometric_distribution<> hyp(r, n, N);
   unsigned x_found = quantile(hyp, p);

   return 0;

Perplexed yours, John.
