I reran clang on develop with -m2, the log and xml file are now reasonably sized, hopefully the results will appear on the web page shortly (Sandia-Linux).

IIUC, this is a problem that could hit any compiler if a widely used library happened to kick off a voluminous error message. So should -m# (for some appropriate #) be the default for regression testing?
Perhaps for develop yes, let's constrain it to, what, 1 or 2 kb message size maximum? But for master (release), hopefully Boost code will be much cleaner and we'd probably want to know if a Boost release is throwing off 100 kb messages when you compile.
Are you planning to make such a change?
I can make the change, 2 kb (-m2) for develop and for master ...?
Thanks for figuring this out!
