Perhaps, I don't understand what BOOST_NO_SWPRINTF macro is for. From
what I can see in the configuration headers for other platforms, this
macro is set if a platforms does not have native swprintf.

On HP-UX, if the compiler predefines _INCLUDE__STDC_A1_SOURCE macro,
it means, that the platform has native swprintf and in this case,
BOOST_NO_SWPRINTF macro should not be defined. It was the intention of
the original condition and a quick experiment shows, that it works as

Before the fix, hpux.hpp would define BOOST_NO_SWPRINTF macro
unconditionally. After the fix, it does not define it if a platform
has native swprintf. I'm sure I'm missing something, I just don't know
what it is :-)

#if !(defined(__HP_aCC) && defined(_INCLUDE__STDC_A1_SOURCE))

# error BOOST_NO_SWPRINTF is defined
# error BOOST_NO_SWPRINTF is not defined
