I think the point was that with the Boost version check you won't be
running these tests *at all* in the current and future Boost.

__cplusplus is a standard C++ macro, but not all compilers consistently
define it to >= 201103 in C++11 mode. Most notably, MSVC doesn't.

If you want to check macros (which is what I'm doing in Boost.Integer to
solve a similar problem with Boost.Multiprecision) then I'd suggest to
check Boost.Config macros for the particular C++11 features that are
required by Boost.Math. You may even peek in Boost.Math sources to see
what these macros are, if they are checked there.
