For sure, you have courage! I gave up earlier than that...

Dave Abrahams has recently summed up the status of (modularised)

In particular, there is a link with the official dashboard for the standard
(non-CMakeified) Boost:
As you will see, there are still a few failing tests. At least, it should
give some hints on which parts
are expected to compile, fail to compile, run successfully or simply fail.
The tests are detailed for each given component. For instance, for
When the test fails, there are some debugging output:

Note that the robot performing the tests for modularised Boost provide also
some details:

That does not answer exactly your questions, but it gives some food for
thoughts, doesn't it?
