Subject: [Boost-testing] Concurrent Boost Testing

A few years ago Noel (I believe) did some work on locking of the output
from a boost test run so that the compile and run output doesn't get
interleaved between tests in the results. This never really worked for us
on AIX. I'm not sure if anyone else has the same issue.

We have been running our tests non concurrently to work around this
problem. However, we are starting to find that the large numbers of new
tests added to Boost CVS has caused a spike in the time required to
complete a full test run (we also run non incremental). We have a renewed
interest in getting this to work properly in order to get the testing times
under the 24+ hours it currently takes. Can anyone point us in the right
direction of where and what we should be looking at? Any help would be
