These compilers are also included in the boost test matrix, which further strengthens my impression that these are "relevant" compilers.

Makes sense.

> I remember that IBM XLC++ had non-standard conform name lookup in the past, I wonder whether this is still the case. Even so the resulting error were normally easy to fix, trying to fix these errors for a library like Boost.Proto seems like a daunting task. So XLC++ should only be considered relevant if the non-standard conform name lookup is fixed.

Could anyone please check if Boost.Local in its current implementation
compiles on IBM XLC++?

Yes, I was able to find this (sorry in advance if it turns out to be
not the very latest info):

I can confirm that Vicente has tried Boost.Local on both Darwin and Clang
