The default config for CodeWarrior is to compile with the Metrowerks
Standard Library (MSL). So the BSD functions are not always available as
only what MSL defines is accessible. It happens that the particular
combination we are testing, Carbon/Mach-O/MSL, has partial access to the
BSD substrate (AFAICT). So gettimeofday is available.. MPTASKS is
rightfully not defined because pthreads are available instead.

...The number of combinations possible with CW just makes one dizzy.
With this patch Boost.Threads builds and passes all tests:

RCS file: /cvsroot/boost/boost/boost/config/platform/macos.hpp,v
retrieving revision 1.15
diff -r1.15 macos.hpp

Hopefully many of the currently failing test will pass :-)
