Boost Testing :

The Jamfile (V1) for seriallization build and test include some bjam code in
serialization.jam. This code implements the ability to use things like

<gcc*> <cxxflags>"-ftemplate-depth-255"

V1 didn't implement the "gcc*" type pattern matching. This permitted me make
the serialization build more reliable accross the compilers and
configurations that's boost supports without enumerating every possible

I notice that I have a new Jamfile (V2) - thank you very much whoever did
this as I generally find bjam to be totally mystifying.

The test matrix seems to be building with V2 in some cases. However, the
rules in serialization.jam aren't being included. This causes test failures
in at least some cases. (gcc needs a switch to increase template depth).

So what should I do about this?

Does V2 permit regular expressions in targets? (like <gcc*> or
<*stlport-5_0> ?

How should I address this?
