When I look at this I conclude that define BOOST_NO_CWCHAR ( and
BOOST_NO_CWTYPE) should just be removed from this file. Its not clear to me
why its there.

The MacOS compiled with GCC includes the file library configuration file
that sets/doesn't set these macros according to the platform. And the gcc
version isn't enough to do it right. E.G. Cygwin gcc doesn't support
wchar_t etc even though its version 3.3. I would like to

a) hear from someone who knows why that code was put in there in the first
b) take it out and run the tests.

If b) looks ok and we don't hear from anyone shortly, then I'll make the
change in CVS.
