Aha, I see! I was confused by the fact that some files explicitly check
e.g. libs/serialization/src/xml_woarchive.cpp
while others just fail to compile
e.g. libs/serialization/src/basic_text_wiprimitive.cpp

OK, I'll ignore any wchar-related failures in serialization.

I didn't get any further testing on FreeBSD, will try to find time tonight.

Thanks for your help,
