Correct.  The exporter is what takes our nightly results and transfers 
them out to the Apache site.  The bug I'm referring to is the one where 
results aren't included if they are missing one or more files (the build 
log, the config.log file, or the config.h file).  I've been working on 
resolving this issue today, and should have something that can be 
deployed on Monday.

I'm primarily referring to the stdcxx windows build infrastructure, 
though the problem occurs at one of the points where the Rogue Wave glue 
script interface with the (generated) windows build infrastructure.

There appears to be at least one issue in the stdcxx Windows scripts for 
Intel C++.  The first issue is the condition that leads to the error 
message mentioned.  The second issue, which may or may not be related, 
is the non-generation of the build_icc-9.1.bat file, used by the nightly 
testing glue scripts.
