The Unix one was not built because i forgot to set the upstream project, :)
so build doesn't triggers when everything else builds.
The Windows one, i was built manually on my machine, because we were lacking
windows slave for jenkins.
You can download windows VM from nativeboost project downloads page:

I'm not happy with VM i built (Cog + NativeBoost Win32 Binaries (7 Feb, 2012) ).
I built the threaded VM, and besides the warning which pops up every
time you launch it,
i had couple crashes when simply loading MC packages.
I am still not sure what happens, and need to investigate, because the
other VM i built recently
on another windows machine (by installing everything from scratch)
behaves quite stable.

Everything is working. It is just jenkins.
I hope in following few days, after we deal with weird free space
issues on jenkins,
we can finally set up windows builds for vanilla vms as well as for nativeboost.
