Subject: [boost] Macro redefinition in boost/cstdint.hpp (1.42 beta1)
From: Vemund Handeland (hvemha_at_[hidden])

I've tested my code with the 1.42 beta, and get a lot of macro redefinition
warnings on my system (msvc-9.0)
The problem is redefinition of INT64_C and UINT64_C in boost/cstdint.hpp. My
code also includes the ICU library, and these two macros are already defined
in the ICU headers. The problem then comes down to header include order...

I see that the updated boost/cstdint.hpp only test !defined(INT8_C) before
defining all INT#_C and UNIT#_C macros

The solution to my problem is to test for existence on every macro before

#ifndef INT#_C
#define INT#_C( value ) ...

Is this appropriate fix, and should I add a ticket for this?
