I'm not sure if there was a hiccup in the report status previously, but
currently the VeecoFTC Windows Mobile results are correctly showing that
Boost.Test fails to build because putenv (used in putenv_impl in
boost/test/utils/runtime/config.hpp) does not exist on this platform.
Previously, runtime/config.hpp was not included as commonly in the
regression tests, but the recent changes to
boost/test/impl/unit_test_parameters.ipp now cause
boost/test/utils/runtime/env/variable.hpp to be included. This
eventually draws in runtime/config.hpp and triggers the compiler error.
  Attached are proposed patches to

boost/test/utils/runtime/env/environment.ipp, and

that I believe should resolve the WinCE problems. Let me know if you
see any issues with them.
