C++ Builder 2009 comes with a prebuilt version of Boost 1.35 for which
support is indeed much improved in the latest compiler. Note however
that this is possible thanks to extensive patches that tweak existing
Borland workarounds to cater for removed bugs and improved standard

I have agreed to help merging into trunk the patches developed by
CodeGear and I plan to start committing in the next few days.
