Subject: [boost] [build] Regression tests failing across the board

The build regression tests are still failing across the board.

This is not acceptable. Having tests that always fail requires viewers
to make an unwanted mental exception and sends the wrong message to
other developers.

The tests should either be fixed or marked up. If they aren't really
tests at all, but are just informational like some in the config
library, they should be changed to return 0 and
"<test-info>always_show_run_output" should be added to the Jamfile.

If the build test failures can't be cleared from the reporting, the
tests themselves should be removed.
