Your best approach is to first post to the main boost developers list
describing the macros you need and what boost library you need them for.
Use the [config] subject tag so the right people will read the posting.
Please keep in mind that the config macros are usually only added if they
are needed by boost libraries; they are not intended to cover all possible
standard compliance concerns.
