I don't use boost build, but I thought the existing ifdef block seemed
like it should work. I don't know much about HPUX on Itanium, but I
went grepping on my HP 11i box, and found the
_POSIX_THREAD_SAFE_FUNCTIONS define in /usr/include/sys/unistd.h.
Then I remembered that to use the new posix friendly APIs on 11i, you
need a -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=199506L. I'd bet that if you added that to
your build, things would work a lot more nicely. I think that define
is only contra-indicated if you're still trying to use CMA threads
(which is not a good idea).

If you do end up needing a modification of the define block above, I'd
recommend __hpux rather than __HP_aCC since this is a platform issue
rather than a compiler issue.
