Actually, as far as Boost.Build tests are concerned, there's no particular
emergency. Historically, those tests tend to care a lot about testing
environment, so one better look only on gcc and msvc test results. Those
reveal that 'print' test is failing everywhere -- which is something I've
missed, but is not important. Also, pch test appear to fail on gcc 4.5 --
which is something that really has to be fixed.
