To clarify, I'm not using clang _with_ Cygwin, that is, I am not using my
own compiled clang with an existing Cygwin installation. I am using Cygwin's
clang package, as installed by the Cygwin installer.

Cygwin's g++ was for a long time stuck at 3.4.6, which made it not
particularly viable for Boost testing, but it's on 4.8.3 now and I find it
very useful, because it's a POSIX platform, which is good for test coverage.
And it has -std=c++11. And clang. What's not to like? Only the fact that
gcc.archive fails for some reason, which breaks all tests that want to
statically link to Boost.Test. And that Boost.Test fails with -std=c++11 due
to absence of mkstemp and putenv. But apart from that, it's perfect. :-)
