This exactly is the problem. This works with MS compilers, but not with
gcc. It complains with: #include' expects "FILENAME" or <FILENAME>"

However the following does work with gcc:

#define PLATFORM_PFX <boost/whatever/windows/

#define PLATFORM_HDR foo.hpp

#define PLATFORM_SFX >


Unfortunately this wont work on MS compilers.

My question was if it would be possible to get something that is
compileable on a couple of platforms. I am aware that macro expansion
after precompiler prefix seems to be implementation dependent. I am not
even sure if the standard has to say anything about this.

At least gcc seems not to conform to what is said in this (rather dated)
