That only fixes our regression tests, it doesn't help users who may still be
using version 3.x.

I also note that the logic in the pathscale.hpp is completely backwards - it
should be something like:

// define defect macros for version 1 or less
#define BOOST_NO_FOO1

// define defect macros for version 2 or less
#define BOOST_NO_FOO2

// define optional feature macros for version 1 newer
#define BOOST_HAS_FOO1

// define optional feature macros for version 2 newer
#define BOOST_HAS_FOO2

If pathscale is still a flavor of gcc then I agree we should probably revert
this for this release, and fix properly for the next one.

Regards, John.
