Well the current tarball is up to date - I've just checked - but there is no
SVN revision number in your results, and tests that have been present for
several weeks aren't showing up. I wonder if you need an updated script
from: ?

Hmm, you should also see:

Building Boost.Thread without optional pthread support
If you need pthread you should specify the paths.
For example:
PTW32_INCLUDE=C:\Program Files\ptw32\Pre-built2\include
PTW32_LIB=C:\Program Files\ptw32\Pre-built2\lib\pthreadVC2.lib

Which has only recently been added (last couple of days).

It's up to you. However, if you use SVN then you're always up to date and
running incremental tests is easier (no need to download the whole thing
then). Just add --user=anonymous to use SVN and --incremental if you want
to "quickly" cycle incremental runs.

The up to date docs are at:
BTW if you haven't found them already :-)
