It failed with the current CVS HEAD. As non-Apple gcc I used a recent
version of ConceptGCC which I have installed on my MacBook Pro, and
had the following line in my user-config.jam:

using gcc : 4.1.1 : /Users/troyer/concepts/bin/g++ ;

attached below. It would actually be very useful to get the gcc
toolset to work under darwin, in addition to the darwin toolset.


The mpi module has not been initialized; MPI libraries will not be
hint: add "using mpi ;" to user-config.jam to enable MPI support.

Please refer to the Boost.Regex documentation for more information
(and if you don't know what ICU is then you probably don't need it).
