Unfortunately, it isn't. For various reasons, the MinGW runtime is
public domain, meaning that authors have disclaimed any copyright
interest that they might have. The author of special_functions could do
this, of course, but it would undermine his legal ability to enforce the
Boost license for this code, if this was something he was interested in.
For Boost's purposes, isn't it best just to use Boost's implementation
of these functions on MinGW?
