#13558: gcd(INT_MIN, INT_MIN) crashes

 The following produces a SIGFPE for me:

 #include <iostream>
 #include <climits>
 #include <boost/integer/common_factor_rt.hpp>

 int main()
     std::cout << boost::integer::gcd(INT_MIN, INT_MIN);

 because it simplifies `gcd(INT_MIN, INT_MIN)` => `gcd(INT_MIN % INT_MIN,
 INT_MIN)` => `gcd(0, INT_MIN)` => `gcd(0, INT_MIN % 0)` => gcd(0,

 I'm actually not sure what the right behavior is (the documented behavior
 is that the return is always positive, and, for example, `gcd(-2, -2)`
 returns 2, but obviously you can't do that here).

 Boost 1.63 returned `INT_MIN` in this case, which seems like the best
