I tried this with VC8 which also has Dinkumware's version of the hash
containers, but it breaks the only lib currently using BOOST_HAS_HASH
(serialization), so I'm not going to enable the macro for now.

BTW it's name is a little misleading: it should be more like
BOOST_HAS_SGI_HASH because it indicates the presence of a hash_map
compatible with the original SGI version.

I'm going to cc this to Robert, in case he thinks serialization could/should
support the Dinkumware hash containers.
