Turns out that boost::function already has the typedefs in addition to the
base classes for some reason.

But there are two showstoppers in Boost.Test:

error C2143: syntax error: missing ',' before '<'


C:\Projects\boost-git\boost\boost/test/impl/framework.ipp(691): error C2039:
'random_shuffle': is not a member of 'std'

that need to be fixed in order for most of the tests to even have a chance
under c++latest.

Boost.Test also required utility/compare_pointees to be fixed, so I did

function/test/std_bind_cxx98.cpp also fails because of mem_fun and bind1st,
and I suppose we need a Config macro to detect their absence.

And we also might need a way (Config macro) to detect the absence of
std::random_shuffle (or alternatively the presence of std::shuffle.)

Should I merge the changes to Bind, Function and Utility to master, or do we
wait for the next release for these fixes?
