It appears that it is now not possible anymore to run the regression tests on cygwin (I think that the definition of BOOST_FILESYSTEM_NARROW_ONLY has changed when building process_jam_log) and as I
have been said that running the tests on USB FAT32 disk is not a good idea, I have stopped running them; I have not enough space on my internal hard disk (maybe this could change later). I wanted to
run the tests with beta version of cygwin 1.7 which says it has wide char support but I coudn't...
