Looks good to me. How about keeping it in a separate header, though?
Personally, I am getting annoyed by having to write, for example:

    #include "boost/config.hpp" // for BOOST_STATIC_CONSTANT

instead of

    #include "boost/config/static_constant.hpp"

and by tracking down whether a header still needs "boost/config.hpp" include
after you've removed, let's say, all BOOST_STRICT_CONFIG references.
