Initially on Windows with VC++ as the backend.

No, I'll look at that, since it looks like the direction you
might be going in (and/or I'll need to do something like that
for some other test and/or build).

But as you mentioned in your other message, it seems the compiler
status pages are currently not using bjam. And upon further snooping,
I'm seeing a regression.cpp program, as well as more\regressions.html
describing some of what's going on.

Yes, the command line options was one aspect as I recall.
There's also some setting up of paths and libraries
which I don't understandard (and suspect it's unnecessary steps),
so I'm going to hold off on specifics under I do understand
better, that way the work doesn't need to be done multiple times
just because I was confused. My questions about the paths
in my previous message will help toward that goal (I have other
additional questiosn of that nature too, but will hold off on
them for now till the path question is clear to me).

Comeau 4.3.0 is a milestone on many fronts, and so probably
"old" versions don't need to be maintained.
