Subject: [Boost-testing] Boost regression on ARM system

I am completely stuck and need some help badly!!

I need to run the boost regression tests on my Broadcom embedded box based
on ARM architecture, which does not have Dev environment.
So, for compiling the boost, I used cross compilation support and built
boost lib on Linux x86 box for ARM architecture.
Now, I want to run the boost regression tests for ARM.
For that I tried building the regression tests under "status" folder
using the command:
$ cd {BOOST_ROOT}/status.
$ vi ../tools/build/v2/b2 site-config.jam
and in place of gcc added the following line
using gcc: arm : /<location of compiler>/arm-linux-uclibcgnueabi-g++;
$ ../tools/build/v2/b3 toolset=gcc-arm

This seems to compile and run the regression tests. But since the box is
x86 the run seems to be failing.
I want to run these tests on my Broadcom box and just want to get them
compiled on x86.
How can I achieve this?
Is there any other approach to achieve what I want.
