Looks like you're making some progress - today's regex tests for Comeau are
looking better:-)

Hum... Yes, that's it!

Here's what it looks like is happening: Como has its own <limits> header
which #includes <limits.h>. <limits> checks for ULONGLONG_MAX, and defines
it if not found.

The included version of <limits.h> is Microsoft VC++ 7.0's, which does not

So far so good.

But then <boost/cstdint.hpp> #includes <limits.h>, so ULONGLONG_MAX isn't
#defined unless some other header brings it in indirectly.

The fix is to change <boost/cstdint.hpp> to #include <boost/limits.hpp>.
That solves the date-time library problems. I'm running the full tests now
to make sure it doesn't kill any other tests.
