I took a quick look at those failures. Many seem to be runtime failures without any output - that is hard to debug remotely. The sun test failures though all can be traced to a change in strong typedefs on the trunk. The "strong typedef'ed" classes no longer have a default constructor and version_type now has a private default constructor. Adding those constructors again should solve the SUN regressions.
