Sorry this should have read: Of little help for what I have in mind,
i.e. deducing which platform the build is intended to go.

Never nor. I am speaking about the config.hpp headers of the boost library.

But as I am just recognizing also the config.hpp does not give such
information in the form of a macro definition. It just defines
BOOST_PLATFORM to some platform dependent string. e.g.
#define BOOST_PLATFORM "Cygwin".
What I was hoping for is something like
if compiling for cygwin.

So perhaps the best I can do is rethinking my problem and try to
approach from a different angle.
