I believe the second boost related problem can be described by the
following testcase tp.C. Since chars are signed on linux, I expect
that the output of both tests should be the same. But this is not the
case. Minimum value is 0 (^@), maximum is 255 (). 
Could please make this consistent; if I am not mistaken the
output of
the second test is expected for signed chars.

I apologize if I made a mistake. I cannot provide a patch since I do
not understand the rather complicated macro machinery.
Hope this helps,

Peter Schmid

Source code tp.C
#include <iostream>
#include <limits>
#include <limits.h>

int main()
    std::cout << "limit.h" << std::endl;
    std::cout << "Checking " << "char"
              << "; min is " << CHAR_MIN
              << ", max is " << CHAR_MAX
              << std::endl;

    std::cout << "limit" <<std::endl;
    std::cout << "Checking " << "char"
              << "; min is " << std::numeric_limits<char>::min()
              << ", max is " << std::numeric_limits<char>::max()
              << std::endl;
