yes, they work on my machine, though I'm not surprised that they don't 
work on a different platform.  Boost libraries are notoriously difficult 
to detect and link correctly, and I didn't really put any effort into 
making sure that code was portable since I'm the only one that's 
actually running the unit tests.  I would gladly accept a patch to make 
it build on OS X though.
