Can you merge https://github.com/boostorg/gil/pull/119 ?
Impact if declined: GIL/IO cannot be used on DragonFly, FreeBSD, OpenBSD.
Affected downstream: https://github.com/freeorion/freeorion/pull/2221#issuecomment-406627682
Workaround if possible: FreeBSD can mimic -traditional via -U__STDC__, DragonFly and OpenBSD would have to create stub <malloc.h> and adjust CPPFLAGS.
Tests results: Flast-FreeBSD11 is green on https://www.boost.org/development/tests/develop/developer/gil-io.html but I couldn't figure out if anything else has changed.
Risk: Low, can only break build. C++ forbids implicit function declaration.
