I came to the same conclusion before reading this post and have already
committed the change. Also changed the comment to better describe the

I just did an intel-win32 clean and then limits_test. It compiled, linked,
and ran without error.

Because # define BOOST_NO_ARGUMENT_DEPENDENT_LOOKUP is (or was, until I
removed it) hardwired into intel.hpp when used with msvc?

Be careful about making changes at this point. AFAICS, the
intel-win32-tools.jam and intel.hpp stuff is working far better than it
