So, I'm back from vacation and slowly getting to work again.
I've started with trying to run the test-suite on linux.

This does not work for me because I've got

# using gcc : 3.4 : distcc /usr/local/gcc-3.4.1/bin/g++ ;
using gcc : 3.4 : /opt/icecream/bin/g++ ;
using gcc : 3.5 : /usr/local/gcc-cvs/bin/g++ ;

in my user-config.jam. The test script then expects the results in
$TEST/bin/gcc/debug while BB happily creates $TEST/bin/gcc-3.4/debug
directories. See out.txt.gz for details

Please find output for
python gcc-3.4 attached in result.txt.gz

Well, it fails on some test because of some unexpected ar output
and on generators_test with

error: Type UI is already registered

I think this is caused by using Qt from user-config.jam.

I think I should better create a special test-config.jam for the tests,
right ?
