It should be set centrally in boost/config/suffix.hpp, the only way I can
see it being set differently in different translation units is if the macros
it tests for to check whether it should be set or not (ULLONG_MAX,
ULONG_LONG_MAX, ULONGLONG_MAX), are defined somewhere other than <limits.h>
and one TU includes a header that sets these, and one does not.

Go ahead and make whatever changes you need to the Metrowerks config -
that's not a compiler I know anything about.
