Speaking for the serialization library - I've been unable to build the wide
version of the the archives with the como implementation of the standard
library. So
the Jamfile skips this library and emits the above message.

You could tweak the Jamfile to not skip build of the wide char libraries
and thier corresponding tests. When I do this I get some problems
I'm not able to solve. If you do this and are able to solve the
problems, let me know and we'll roll in the fixes.

BTW, I've tested comeau 4.3.3 on windows/XP with VC 7.1 backend.
However, to do this I had to comment out part of the test library to
avoid a linking problem.
