At [1] are build logs for the following platforms and compilers:

* AIX 5.3 - gcc, vacpp
* Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) - gcc, intel-linux, pathscale, pgi
* OS X 10.7.4 (XCode 4.4.1) - darwin, gcc
* Ubuntu Precise (12.04) - gcc
* Solaris 10 - gcc, sun
* Windows 7 (mingw-w64 4.7.1) - mingw64, vc10, vc9

I'd attach them to the mail, but the moderation has insanely small
attachment limits. Whoever moderates this list, don't bother putting my
previously carefully crafted message through, I'll just put them on a
website and lose permanence.

A quick skimming of the logs reveals that the sun toolset seems to have
gone crazy with the changes.

Other toolsets complain about implicit declarations for some things.
Disregard the linker errors from GCC on AIX, it has never been able to
link anything but it can compile things.

Don't forget to make executable, unless that's magically
handled by the version control.
