Subject: [boost] [config] including typeinfo in dinkumware.hpp when RTTI is disabled

Evidently the only way to currently compile clang on Windows using the
VC++ RTL is to compile without RTTI and exception handling in its VC++
emulation ( options -D_HAS_EXCEPTIONS=0 /GR- ). This may be totally
unrealistic for Boost. Nonetheless with these compiler options, when the
dinkumware.hpp is being used by Boost config, it is including typeinfo
and this is causing a problem:

  c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio
10.0\VC\INCLUDE\typeinfo(156,10) : error: unknown class name
'exception'; did you mean '_exception'?
         : public exception

Is it realistic in dinkumware.hpp to not include typeinfo if RTTI is not
enabled ? Or is it just more realistic to say that compiling Boost
libraries with RTTI disabled is not going to work ?
