Hi Beman,

The last three iostreams failures involve your cw-9_4 toolset.

In the last few days I've tried to set things up so that on Windows systems,
unless the tester takes the affirmative steps of setting some environment
variables for zlib and bzip2, the three compression tests will not be run. The
reports should show empty white squares for these tests. This mechanism is
working fine for metacomm and sslapeta.

The three failures show that the build system is trying to build bzip2_test,
gzip_test and zlib_test, but that the zlib and libbz2 headers can't be found.
This means one of three things:

1. The logic in my Jamfiles which is supposed to prevent the tests from running
on windows unless ZLIB_SOURCE and BZIP2_SOURCE are set is not working on your

2. You've set the environment variables ZLIB_SOURCE and BZIP2_SOURCE, but they
don't point to zlib and libbz2 installations.

3. The three failures are old but are being reported as new.

Would you please check 2 & 3?
