Boost Testing :

I was talking with someone on IRC who, maybe, would be able to run
regression tests on Solaris/x86. At that point we found out we're unable
to tell whether this is already being tested, because Caleb's results
only show "SunOS 5" in the title (Later I found out Caleb uses Sparc).

While "SunOS 5" is correct, it also isn't very informative, since the
real information is in the minor number which has been used as the
Solaris version number since SunOS 5.7/Solaris 7.

However, my question is whether we should require the results for some
platforms to indicate the CPU architecture. At least for SunOS and Linux
it would make sense in the long run. It'll also make sense for *BSD if
we had any testers for those operating systems. What do you think about
this? (One can find out the CPU for SunOS by looking at the output of
config_info. However, that's a bit cumbersome.)

I could add "-x86" manually for my Linux results. However, for those who
use the script it'll probably make more sense if that
information would be created by the script.
