I am not a Guru, but I have had experience in this area. I have found that
the following will, more often than not, solve the problem:
class base: public boost::noncopyable

How about something along the lines of:
#include <boost/warn/push.hpp> // disable common warnings
// code generating warnings goes here
#include <boost/warn/pop.hpp> // revert to previous warning configuration
The compiler detection can then be placed in those files, without header
guards to allow them to be reused, e.g.:
# pragma warning( push )
# pragma warning( disable : 4290 ) // C++ exception specification ignored
except to indicate a function is not __declspec(nothrow)
# pragma warning( disable : 4512 ) // assignment operator could not be
// other compilers
# pragma warning( pop )
