I was going to post about this but you beat me to it!

There's one last catch (which I had to go through) to get this to work.
I did as Russel suggested, and put everything in the PCH, only to find out
I'd tried that before but had gotten the error "initialized data something,
can't create PCH". The error came from including "locale" in the PCH also (I
guess string pulls it in, I don't know, didn't bother looking).

So, after changing out of the "library is right, I must be doing something
wrong" mode, I found that "locale" missdetects the borland compiler, it has
#ifdef __BORLANDC

where it should've been __BORLANDC__

Since I'm using BCB6 straight out of the box + update pack 4, I'm guessing
other people might run into the same thing, so I think it should be
mentioned in the docs Robert R./Jeff G. said they'd include, even though
it's not a boost specific issue.

Hope this helps
