Am I correct that BOOST_PROGRAM_OPTIONS_DECL is defined to
BOOST_SYMBOL_IMPORT, which expands to nothing, and it breaks when
Boost.ProgramOptions library throws an exception marked with it?

I'm asking because I have a similar setup in Boost.Filesystem, and it is
tested with clang+libc++ on Linux, and the tests passed last time I checked.

One potential problem that I noticed is that if an exception is marked
with BOOST_*_DECL and static linking is enabled, BOOST_*_DECL is empty
and the exception RTTI is left hidden. This can be a problem if the user
links with Boost statically (e.g. wraps it into a library of his own)
and then the exception crosses the library boundary.
