As expected, the Visual Studio builds have failures with msvc-8.0, 9.0, and
10.0 in type_erasure:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\INCLUDE\utility(32) :
error C2248: 'boost::shared_mutex::shared_mutex' : cannot access private
member declared in class 'boost::shared_mutex'

...failed compile-c-c++

Everything else looks good. Here's the full logs.

toolset arch compile Link Execute

msvc-9.0 32 FAIL X X

Compile means that the b2 command completed without errors
Install means that the installers for the respective version were generated
Link means that visual studio was able to link a sample executable to a
library (libboost_thread-vcXXX-mt[-gd]-1_XX.lib) generated
Execute means that the linked program executed without errors.
