 Just FYI: Modern versions of Visual Studio (I'm using VS2012) assume a
 default of the built-in wchar_t type when so many libraries (such as Qt)
 compile with -wchar_t-. It's just one of those gotchas.
 An easy case to reproduce is make a very small Qt project in Visual Studio
 and perform a boost::filesystem operation that involves std::string. The
 link will fail because it expects a wchar_t type to exist, and it does
 It would be interesting if there was a way to compile the filesystem
 libraries to have both versions of the required methods (wchar_t as well
 as signed short, I think it is), though I'm not sure how this would be
 done. I saw this issue with boost::log as well.
