it is difficult to classify a library as N/A when we don't know what is
not working on. I'm wondering if this is not catching a bug on the
regression tools.

Boost.Thread is on the same case, and I will be interested in changing
whatever is needed to make it usable on Sun/Solaris.

Please, could you see why the regression tests are not showing why the
test fails?
