Metrowerks has special preprocessor macros (like "__option(XXX)") to let you
know the state of a particular option. If Comeau and Intel can sometimes
support void returns and sometimes not, hopefully they have similar
preprocessor macros to detect their option states. If so, you can define or
not define BOOST_NO_VOID_RETURNS based on that option.
