That's a good pointer. I will change noncopyable.hpp to include this flag:

BOOST_CONSTEXPR noncopyable() = default;
~noncopyable() = default;
Another possible fix would be to use BOOST_DEFAULTED_FUNCTION for the constructor and destructor, but I'm not sure what happens to 'BOOST_CONSTEXPR', which is not included with the '#else' version of the constructor. So, I'll try out the safer fix I
I also didn't replace BOOST_NO_DEFAULTED_FUNCTIONS with BOOST_NO_CXX11_DEFAULTED_FUNCTIONS, not knowing the current preference.
Anyway, I leave it to you to decide how to fix noncopyable.hpp for this minor incompatibility with an ancient compiler. Since BOOST_NO_CXX11_NON_PUBLIC_DEFAULTED_FUNCTIONS exists, it seems reasonable to use it where appropriate.
