I agree we should not turn --a off. Instead, which are the libraries which
does not honor BOOST_DISABLE_WIN32 and still include windows headers? I
think we should fix those. To do tests, we can comment the definition on the
macro within comeau.hpp, but since it's enabled now, I guess those libraries
should be fixed.
