I've committed a workaround to both HEAD and RC branches.

That takes care of Boost.Filesystem, but there are other libraries that use
std::strcpy, std::strcmp, etc, so I'm afraid Borland will still have
problems with other libraries. Of course, these libraries may not work with
this compiler for other reasons.
