The tests which assume support for variadic macros will fail for any
compiler/version which simply does not recognize the syntax. There
aren't too many around but I do currently support some pretty early
versions of gcc ( prior to 4+ ) which do not support variadic macros. Of
course the test matrix will probably not even test these early versions.
The equivalent non-variadic versions should not have any problems.

I am also still working on support for Intel and Sun C++ compilers on
Linux and so have not determined yet how much of TTI will work with them.
