This issue should now be resolved and correct test results should appear
again later tonight. The problem turned out not to be related to
Volodya's recent stlport.jam fixes, but instead was because of a file I
neglected to remove in from regression test root directory.
On our test machine, we run regression.py out of a /BoostRT folder. It
just so happened that I had an earlier version of stlport.jam in this
/BoostRT folder. Since regression.py sets BOOST_BUILD_PATH to /BoostRT,
it was locating the old stlport.jam file in /BoostRT rather than the
current one in /BoostRT/boost/tools/build/v2/tools. The incompatibility
between this old stlport.jam and the new msvc.jam files caused the
Although this is really an error on my part not to have removed the old
stlport.jam file from /BoostRT, I guess I am curious about why
BOOST_BUILD_PATH is set to the regression root folder (/BoostRT) rather
than the folder where the boost tree is unpacked (/BoostRT/boost).
There is probably a good reason; it just wasn't clear to me.
