Ok. But there are a number of macros like this in boost that needs to be
consistently defined over both boost libs and others. BOOST_NO_EXCEPTION
would be one example.

I guess I can go to libs/test/build/ and say bjam
--define="_SECURE_SCL=0", although that is somewhat annoying.

Does anybody have a better idea?
