Variadic macro support is defined in Boost for a given compiler when
BOOST_NO_VARIADIC_MACROS is not defined. Gcc has had it since version
3.0, VC++ has had it since 8.0, even Borland has had it since BCB6. I
suspect Clang supports variadic macros also although I did not try to
add it to the clang config files because of lack of knowledge about clang.
