In order that others can help you, please upload the full set of
error message output from the regression tests to the boost files
section (compressed, of course).
Reading boost/config.hpp, there's no point in changing the
compiler-specific bug macros. You may want to focus on these
library-specific macros, some of which are already set
differently for STLport, for example.
# define BOOST_NO_STD_ITERATOR // No std::iterator in this case
# define BOOST_MSVC_STD_ITERATOR 1
# define BOOST_NO_SLIST
# define BOOST_NO_HASH
# define BOOST_NO_TEMPLATED_ITERATOR_CONSTRUCTORS
# define BOOST_NO_STD_ALLOCATOR
# define BOOST_NO_STD_ITERATOR_TRAITS
Other than that, there may be specific #ifdef BOOST_MSVC workarounds
in the code, which fail to distinguish between the shipped library
and the updated one.
