If BOOST_STATIC_CONSTANT were independent of the config then it would be a
good idea, but it's not so it's not such a good idea IMO - I don't see any
point in having a header that just contains:

#include <boost/config.hpp>

and nothing else. All we're doing is creating more work for the
preprocessor to do for no good reason IMO.
