So, after all, you are *right*!
I mean, everything *really* boils down to the <limits> header for
Therefore, nothing may be done on the Gcc release branch, on the
contrary, the maintainer of boost/random (probably Jens Maurer, I'm
CC-ing him) should autoconf the header for this "feature" ;-) of
gcc-3.0/1/2 C++ run-time library.
Something similar to what present in the replacement header for
gcc-2.95.x missing <limits> will of course do the trick...
