That would seem to be the missing magic. I use cygwin with gcc 4.3.4
to test here so I can try that. So I guess that the explanation of this
instance might be that all the gcc compilers in the test matrix don't
use -fvisibility=hidden while the MingW one does? and this couples
with my usage of BOOST_HAS_DECL in some unexpected way?.
anyway, I have something to work with for now.
