That was my working theory, but Beman says I'm wrong.

We're working on a better solution for Pro 9.

That sounds like a reasonable thing to do. But it also seems like we
have a minor mystery here.

In metrowerks.hpp I see:

# ifdef _MSL_NO_LOCALE
# endif

which seems right. But if this is statically linking, (and thus not
including <UseDLLPrefix.h.>), I see no reason BOOST_NO_STD_LOCALE
should be getting turned on.
