Running a test for my own vmd library for a single particular test,
which is always being rerun, with the -d+12 option gives a dependency
graph. But I do not know how to intepret the dependency graph, which is
pretty large, to determine why the test is always being rerun. Can you
take a look at the output, if I attach it, to determine why it is always
being rerun, or explain to me what I should be looking for to determine
this ?

I have carefully looked at source file dates for my own header files and
test files and they are all earlier than the dates where the output
files are being generated. I think this may be a problem with the latest
Boost Build, perhaps having to do with the fact that my header file
directory in the Boost directory structure is a symbolic link, since I
have created my non-Boost library using the new modular Boost directory
