Hi Boost builders,

We currently running the Boost test suite using ./b2 in the status directory. 

We run nightly on several simulators and real boards using ARM, PowerPC, Intel processors compiling Boost 1.68 with clang and GCC

Our test results are being peppered with the occasional failure of __boost_check_library__

I’m pretty sure we don’t care about the results of this test in the context cross-compiling VxWorks?


Probably not.
 

What exactly is it testing for?


It checks various requirements and guidelines of the library structure.
 

And assuming it isn’t relevant, how do we “turn it off”?


Add the "--no-check-libs" per <https://github.com/boostorg/boost/blob/develop/status/Jamfile.v2#L18> (I believe running b2 --help in that dir would have shown you that info also).
 

The library Jam files don’t have an explicit reference to this that I can find?
