I tried building in C++03 mode on the 20131013 snapshot of GCC 4.9 with
Boost.MPI enabled on Linux (RHEL 6.4), and still had some errors (and
many, many warnings):

1. There is still the message about link.jam being missing that I posted
about with RC1.

2. I get a number of failures; a few are due to warnings-as-errors with
more warnings enabled in 4.9, but many seem to be real problems.

3. qi_match_manip1 seems to enter an infinite loop intermittently (but
most of the time) and use a large amount of memory.

A partial test log (just of the failures up until the infinite loop in #3)
is at <URL:>. I
used the -w option to try to hide most of the warnings, and this was run
after some other builds so it does not show the parts of the test suite
that worked.
