It signifies that the compiler does not support argument dependent lookup of
unqualified names, for example:
will look for a definition of "foo" in the same namespace in which the type
of bar is defined.

It will activate various workarounds inside Boost code, and possibly disable
a few features here and there as well; on the whole though you shouldn't
notice any real difference, just be aware that you are using a compiler
known to be rather broken.
