That just says that the results from failed building the dependency did not
get included in the testing processing (it's a known problem which is
likely never going to get fixed in this version of the test results

Which log are you looking at? As the logs we would want to look at are the
ones from the test machines (assuming someone has made one of them
available). An option to track the problem down is to checkout the release
branch and manually run the tests from the root/status directory for the
serialization lib only to see if you can reproduce the errors (as it could
be a build system issue also):

  cd <boost-root>/status
  b2 --limit-tests=serialization
