First, my apologies for nitpicking something which is a side issue.

The tradition in boost is to assume "compliant unless known to be
otherwise". So the symbol should be BOOST_NO_COMPLIANT_CMATH instead. The
documentation for Boost.Config talks about why we do things this way.
(Ideally we could find a way to be slightly more specific about what's
lacking, since "not compliant" is a bit vague.)
