Hum... There is a BOOST_HAS_DECLSPEC macro. There are BOOST_PYTHON_DECL,
BOOST_SIGNALS_DECL, BOOST_REGEX_DECL, etc, macros, but not overall
BOOST_DECL macro. What gives? I would have thought we would have had such
an animal a long time ago. Or does every dll need its own?

Anyhow, if you want to propose a solution for the Filesystem library, it
would be appreciated both by me and by users too I'm sure.
