Boost Testing :

Hello, the referred regression engine seems to have a generalized
problem by which no lib linking ever suceeds. This was reported
some weeks ago, but alas no solution has been found yet, see for details. The problem seems to be a
configuration one, because:

* Every test involving lib linking fails to link, no matter the lib.
* Robert has reported that he builds Boost.Serialization for this
compiler in his local Comeau environment, so at least tests
involving this lib should work --but they don't.

I think if the person maintaining the engine (Bronek?) could perform
the following, maybe we'd gain some insight about the problem:

* Select some simple test which is failing due to lib linking and
bjam it manually. I suggest any_to_ref_test, which looks simple
enough, and fails bc of unsuccesful linking with
libboost_test_exec_monitor, see
* Does bjam trigger the building of libboost_test_exec_monitor?
* If so, does it succeed?
* If so, which is the final name of the lib file and the dir where it
is located? Do those match what the linker expects later?

I cannot but help thinking this has to be a simple misconfiguration
problem, I'd like to be of more help in solving this but lacking
access to the engine I can only ask for Bronek to be our guide :)

Thank you,
