Ok. I looked through the history. In my original version and all the way to Nov
7th 2010 it was correct and we were using _MSC_VER. On Nov 7 someone with svn
name "wash" (who is this by the way), checked in the change which switched to
BOOST_MSVC. The comment was this:

"Clang hand-holding, mostly for issues caused by Clang defining GCC macros."

How this has anything to do with clang or GCC beats me. So it seems this toolset
was broken for almost a year and no one noticed.

I am going to revert to _MSC_VER tonight. If Mr. wash wants these changes back,
he can get a permission from Mr. Gaunard first.
