Just an update. I was finally able to get the regression tests to
compile to 100%. What this means is that if the regression test
involved creating an executable then that test was compiled but not
yet actually executed. The regression tests that are currently being
compiled were left over from the previous CMake files so some newer
tests are obviously not included at this point. Also, I have not
updated my svn working directory since sometime last week.

I did actually try "make test" and I get into the exception regression
tests and I get a hard failure which stops everything. The test that
is failing is a test where a source file is actually attempted to be
compiled and is failing. I believe I know the problem so I am going to
dive into that next.

Again, this is with a static-multi-threaded build only on OS X 10.5.5
with gcc (Xcode 3.1). I have yet to try this on windows. I Have VS
express 2008 at my disposal to try sometime.
