Thanks, I think I need a little more info to do this properly:
Are we running regression tests for this compiler anywhere? If not the
output from running the program config_info.cpp in libs/config/test would be

Hmmm looks like threading support gets turned off in suffix.hpp with:
#if (defined(__MT__) || defined(_MT) || defined(_REENTRANT) \
|| defined(_PTHREADS) || defined(__APPLE__) || defined(__DragonFly__)) \
# define BOOST_HAS_THREADS
Does the compiler have a separate multi-threaded mode than enables any of
those macros, or should we define BOOST_HAS_THREADS unconditionally, or

BOOST_NO_DEDUCED_TYPENAME is spurious here (it's always defined), two of the
others (BOOST_NO_STDC_NAMESPACE and BOOST_NO_EXCEPTION_STD_NAMESPACE) are
std lib related, which std lib is used? STLPort by any chance?
