It is clearly a nuisance for all Boost authors to avoid using the lowercase name
'check' - and even more to have to change code retrospectively.

(It wouldn't be quite so bad of they had followed the UPPERCASE for MACROS
convention, or if macros were namespaced).

I'm sure it is too late to do anything about this now, but do we have any
channel for Boost to send an Official Raspberry to Apple by way of complaint -
to try (probably in vain) to reduce the risk of something like this in future.
