BOOST_SYMBOL_EXPORT is defined to BOOST_SYMBOL_VISIBLE on non-Windows in
order to make the third case unnecessary. Alexander suggests that on macOS
(but not Linux), it's also necessary to define BOOST_SYMBOL_IMPORT to
BOOST_SYMBOL_VISIBLE (instead of to nothing) on non-Windows. This seems
In other words,
- BOOST_SYMBOL_EXPORT - when the library is being built;
- BOOST_SYMBOL_IMPORT - when the library is being consumed by user.
