I've made the change. It really didn't have much impact on the code as
there were just three functions that weren't already inline. Worth it,
because users have requested the ability to build the Filesystem library as
a DLL.

I had a moment of panic when the first tests still failed, but it was only
because I'd forgotten to remove BOOST_FILESYSTEM_DECL from the class.

I'm rerunning both the tests and the build from scratch, just to be sure,
and assuming they are OK will commit the changes to CVS shortly.
