Boost Testing :

Hi all,

I just tried to start a run of regression tests against HEAD, and I keep
getting failures in bjam for the vc-6_5 and borland-5_8_2 toolsets, whilst
processing the jamfiles, before actually building anything.

I used the following commandline on Windows 2000:

python --user=anthonyw --force-update \
--runner=JustSoftwareSolutions --toolsets=vc-6_5

The final few lines of bjam.log say:

boost-test(RUN) "graph/subgraph" : "libs\graph\test\subgraph.cpp"

I get the same output for borland-5_8_2. It's only these compilers that give
the error; I currently have a run going for vc-7_1, vc-8_0 and mingw, which is
working fine.
