I think we need to stop defining BOOST_HAD_THREADS unconditionally for gcc -
or at least not on those platforms where we can detect threading support - I
know how to do this on cygwin/mingw32/linux, but what about HP? Is there a
specific define set when -pthreads is used on the command line.
BTW what happens if you compile with <threading>multi ?
