#2956: vxWorks POSIX quirks for date_time
 Reporter: Dustin Spicuzza <dustin_at_[hidden]> | Owner: az_sw_dude
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: Boost 1.39.0 | Component: date_time
  Version: Boost 1.38.0 | Severity: Showstopper
 Keywords: |
 vxWorks is almost a unix-like platform, that supports the POSIX realtime
 extensions and a lot of POSIX stuff.. but its weird.

 It apparently doesn't support gettimeofday. I modified microsec_time_clock
 to support a situation where gettimeofday isn't available but
 clock_gettime is.

 vxWorks has localtime_r, but it is defined as "extern int localtime_r
 (const time_t *_tod, struct tm *_result);"... so it needs some hand
 holding to work correctly. same with gmtime_r

 Of course, this patch also requires the user to setup a config that
 defines BOOST_HAS_CLOCK_GETTIME, but I'm going to submit a separate patch
 for vxWorks platform config
