I think this is even simpler

1) use the release branch
2) put the library to be tested into that branch - only on the local testing
3) CD to boost/libs/newlib/test
4) run ../../../tools/src/ (or bat) --toolset=msvc-7.1 (or
5) this will create a pair of local html tables in boost/libs/newlib/test
show all test results.

This only requires a tester.
