Except for some of the xlC (C++) test to compile very slowly, it pass
the test suite (C and C++) without any failures indeed.
I can send any output you might need. Also, I am also in position to
provide you with an account on our test system if this is of interest
to you - without any fine prints like ``we own your code''. :-)
