Probably the correct place is Boost.Config, but so far
boost::throw_exception (which is part of Boost Exception) seems to be
the only function that needs this macro and I thought we don't have
good enough reason to add weight to Boost.Config at this point. It'll
take no time at all to make BOOST_ATTRIBUTE_NORETURN official if it is
needed elsewhere in the future.
