I've been looking at the current failures on trunk for Boost.Thread,
and one platform that's failing a lot is VeecoFTC's msvc-
8.0~wm5~stlport5.1. Further investigation reveals that this is due to
the lack of boost::date_time::microsec_clock, which is no longer
present for this compiler since change 45393.

The comment for the change says "Disable BOOST_HAS_FTIME on WinCE.",
and the comment in the code says "GetSystemTimeAsFileTime not present
on WinCE."

Though the comment in the code is correct, there is already a macro
for that in boost/config/compiler/visualc.hpp:

WinCE *does* have FILETIME, and boost::date_time::microsec_clock uses
it successfully on WinCE, with a workaround for the lack of

Please can we revert this change.
