I'm not sure that analysis is correct since (1) it is only affecting one
particular version of one compiler, rather than all POSIX compilers, and
(2) other than some Boost headers, which presumably don't include POSIX
headers, the define is give before inclusion other headers.

It any case, please try moving the define to the first line of the file,
and let me know if that changes the results.
