The joint gcc 3.4.3 + 4.1.0 test runs appear to have turned up a bug (which
you have since fixed I believe) in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH handling of BBv2.

When tests were run, I would get an LD_LIBRARY_PATH that included both the
4.1.0 and 3.4.3 libdirs, and due to the issue in the next paragraph, this
broke many of the 3.4.3 tests.

I've had to discontinue testing on gcc 4.1.0 for now due to it not
supporting wide-characrter strings or streams on Solaris versions less than
10 (see This is why,
when the 3.4.3 tests were picking up the 4.1.0 libstdc++, they were hitting
missing symbol errors.

Here's my current test-config.jam:

--- cut ---
using gcc : 3.4.3_sunos : /home/ietdev/tools/sunos-sparc/gcc-3.4.3/bin/g++ :
<linker-type>sun ;
using gcc : 4.1.0_sunos : /home/ietdev/tools/sunos-sparc/gcc-4.1.0/bin/g++ :
<linker-type>sun ;
using python : 2.4 : /home/ietdev/tools/sunos-sparc/python-2.4 ;
--- cut ----

Perhaps the value of LD_LIBRARY_PATH should be reported along with the rest
of the test output?
