I don't see any gcc columns for Sandia in the current table and the
link to the test output page doesn't work for me. Maybe you were
looking at some stale data.

The compiler version typically comes from the tester name at the
header/footer of the table. If you click on it, you will see
additional info regarding the tester, although specifically for Sandia
there is not much useful there.
You can see some more info about the compiler by viewing the output of
the config_info test of Boost.Config:

The flag is most likely added by the tester and if so, that is a
tester configuration error.

Normally, the contact info is included in the tester info page that I
mentioned earlier. Unfortunately, this is not the case for Sandia. I
think, those testers are run by Noel Belcourt (kbelco at sandia.gov).
He sometimes appears on this list.
Given that currently the faulty columns are not present, the problem
might have been fixed already (as it was reported earlier on the
list), and the columns were removed.
