My take on this is:

BCB5 (0x550 to 0x551) doesn't have this problem as it uses RogueWaves STL
BCB6 (0x560 to 0x564) only has this problem if using STLPort (default)
(i.e. no _USE_OLD_RW_STL defined)

But if in BCB6, you define _USE_OLD_RW_STL then BCB6 uses RogueWave STL
as shipped with BCB5 so doesn't have the problem. So the test may be

#if (__BORLANDC__ >= 0x560) && (__BORLANDC__ <= 0x564) &&
     #define BOOST_BAD_ISDIGIT

(Sorry, not up on the BOOST_WORKAROUND syntax yet, so that is the best I
can provide).

I'm not sure about kylix (0x570 and above) and whether it comes with the
old RW STL or just the STLPort version, hopefully someone else on the
list can help with this, as Alisdair has already asked.

Probably not worth the effort then given that even if _USE_OLD_RW_STL is
defined, it still works whether BOOST_BAD_ISDIGIT is defined or not
