boost/math_fwd.hpp is now working for me, thanks a lot!

However I maybe found another regression introduced after the 1.64
release, this time in Boost.Thread (with pthread implementation and
BOOST_HAS_NANOSLEEP). A minimal example:

#include <boost/thread/thread.hpp>

int main() {

This sleeps "forever", however a slightly more complicated program might
not. I bisected it to this commit:

The problem seems to be the BOOST_THREAD_USEFIXES_TIMESPEC define, which
alters some internal behavior, effectively changing

. If the sleep is called inside a boost::thread, hidden::sleep_until is
implemented via condition.do_wait_until instead of nanosleep, this
works. For me a slightly extended test code works as expected if
compiled in debug mode but is stuck in release mode. I'm testing under
Linux with GCC 7.1 and a Clang++ 5.0.0 snapshot.
