While I (and probably others!) would very much like to get fixes for
random, there are a couple of issues:

* Patches really are best to be supplied as diff output; that cuts errors
applying them. The -c switch helps make them more readable. It may be
better to attach the diff output as a file, if long lines would be wrapped
by pasting it inline.

* Testing for "defined( __BORLANDC__ )" is usually discouraged because it
will fail when the compiler changes to a new version which behaves
differently. Also, there may be a Boost config macro which applies, and is
the preferred way to detect a compiler deficiency.
