FYI, $BOOST_ROOT/tools/regression/xsl_reports/test/ directory
contains a test suite that does not require any external regression
results and generally makes modification of XSL reports much easier:

  - generates incoming XML results
    enumerating all possible combinations of test failures / expected
    failures markup.

  - uses XMLs produced by to
    generate the corresponding report pages.

I.e. doing


would give you a local copy of the reports (in the "./output"
directory) which you can then examine/compare with the expected

You can further shorten report generation cycle by editing

     , reports = [ "x", "ds", "dd", "dsr", "ddr", "us", "ud", "usr", "udr" ]

line in "", which regulates what type of report pages
you want it to generate (first "d" or "u" stands for "developer"
or "user" correspondingly, second "s" or "d" stands for "summary"
or "details" and third "r" stands for release).
