I ran the test suite for Exception on FreeBSD against trunk r67606 with
gcc 4.6.0 20101225 on amd64 with only the following failure:

errno_test.cpp(31): test '1==*boost::get_error_info<info_errno>(x)' failed in function 'int main()'
1 error detected.
I cannot run the testsuite with the system compiler (4.2.1) to compare,
as the build system for some reason shoves /usr/lib32 into my
LD_LIBRARY_PATH, making libc be the wrong bitness.
