TR1 is now deprecated, and again hasn't been changed in a long time -
the main failures seem to be caused by changes to Boost.Random (or
possibly std::random) so that it is now no longer TR1 compliant.
Someone would have to rewrite it to use TR1-compatible random number
classes perhaps culled from an old version of Boost, frankly I just
don't see the point. The lib should probably be removed from Boost at
