Subject: [Boost-build] build/test on mac os

I'm trying to build and test the serialization library on my mac os system
with yosmite installed. I'm using the command line as

../../../tools/regression/src/ toolset=darwin-4.8
cxxflags=-std=c++03 variant=debug link=static >b2.log &

and my user_config.jam contains

using darwin : 4.8.1 : /usr/local/bin/g++ : -I/usr/local/include/c++/4.8.1
<cxxflags>"-std=c++11" ;

Things seem to work. Except that whenever the executable throws an
exception, it isn't caught and terminate is just called. I couple of months
ago I had this working but I can't figure out what the problem is now. I'm
noticing that I have conflicting std= flags - it's not clear what boost
build does in this case. I'll experiment with this. But in the meantime any
help would be appreciated.
