I uncommented the handful of tests that I had commented out in the unit test source and these tests do compile and pass in MSVC9 and gcc4.2.2. The only tests commented out now are one which fails because the functionality isn't implemented (planed but not implemented functinality) and one that has long runtime and performs no functional testing.
