I've fixed that where possible, but I think I cannot fix that for
literals exceeding the maximum long. Suggestion?

Fixed. Please regression-test on MSVC and Borland.

There is no enum with 64 bit values in rand48.
For now, I've applied the fix conservatively (i.e. no rand48 with
MSVC), but please try rand48 with MSVC.
Oh, and I've extended boost/stdint.h to make 64 bit types available
with gcc as well, because gcc uses ULONG_LONG_MAX instead of
ULLONG_MAX for the relevant preprocessor define.
I've also updated integer_traits_test.cpp with the new
Everything is in the CVS, there are no regressions with gcc on Linux.
