I've finally had a look at Digital Mars' link failures
(e.g. and after a quick research realized
that these are simply due to the fact that by default our tests
require dynamic linking, and the Digital Mars distribution available
for online download (as opposite to the CD-ROM distribution) does not
contain necessary library files.

[Walter, is there any chance we could get these without cashing out
$42.50 for the CD (for testing purposes only, of course)?]

We could resolve this in the short term by changing the default
<runtime-link> settings for the Digital Mars toolset to "static", but
I'm not sure whether it's possible on the toolset level. Is it? Or do
the DMC tests have to be run in a separate batch?
