I would say put what EDG usually does in common_edg.hpp and then
override in the individual compiler header if it differs.
Not sure how much that helps in this case.... maybe the "safe" thing to
do is to disable both in common_edg.hpp when __RTTI is not set, then
undef BOOST_NO_TYPEID when required (msvc)?
