OK, the preprocessor problems now are gone.

Yes, it's a non-Windows system.

Now I have the following issues:

1) I need to increase the maximum number of pending instantiations, it
seems that the default value of the compiler (64) is not enough. This is
also true for the acc toolset, AFAICT.

2) I get a number of compile time errors along the lines of:

cxx: Error: integer_test.cpp, line 623: expression must have a constant value
     BOOST_CHECK_EQUAL( static_cast<typename
cxx: Error: ../../../boost/integer.hpp, line 375: class
"boost::maximum_unsigned_integral<<error-constant>>" has no member "type"
           detected during instantiation of class
"boost::uint_value_t<Value> [with Value=<error-constant>]" at line 623 of
       typedef typename maximum_unsigned_integral<Value>::type least;

It looks like all EDG based compilers are flagging this error, see for

3) There are quite a few warning about truncation of values or sign
changes, where I can't tell whether they are expected or not.
