Ah, I see now.

Now that I look more carefully at the results of the regression, I see that
the CodeWarrior test did not define BOOST_HAS_THREADS even though it did
define BOOST_HAS_PTHREADS, so we're both getting the same results. I was
confused because the gcc test did define BOOST_HAS_THREADS, and it never
occurred to me that there was a compiler-specific aspect.

I'll fix this. The simplest fix is probably to add an unconditional
BOOST_HAS_THREADS define to metrowerks.hpp. This makes it clear that
CodeWarrior is effectively always in "multi-threaded mode". If no supported
thread API is discovered, then suffix.hpp will undef BOOST_HAS_THREADS, so
there's no need for "#ifdef __MACH__" or anything like that.
