Subject: [Boost-build] Boost on Xcode 3.2 generates visibility warnings

Since Xcode 3.2 (the Xcode that ships with Snow Leopard) lots of "has
different visibility" warnings surfaced when first building a project
that uses boost 1_39.
I eventually discovered that Xcode's default behaviour for a target is
to set GCC_INLINES_ARE_PRIVATE_EXTERN to YES. This conflicts with the
way that the boost libraries are built. So I disabled it in my
target's xcconfig file (you can also set it using the "Inline methods
hidden" setting through the UI):
GCC_INLINES_ARE_PRIVATE_EXTERN = NO
The warnings then disappear.
Interestingly the previous version of Xcode on Leopard didn't show
these warnings despite the same default setting. Perhaps something was
fixed in Xcode or gcc between gcc 4.0 and gcc 4.2.
