Boost spirit fails to build with -DBOOST_NO_INTRINSIC_WCHAR_T

Description

Attempting to compile a program for Android using Boost::Spirit runs into the following problem:

Android compilation requires the -DBOOST_NO_INTRINSIC_WCHAR_T definition. This turns off BOOST_TT_AUX_BOOL_TRAIT_CV_SPEC1(is_integral,wchar_t,true) in boost/type_traits/is_integral.hpp

This then causes to_utf8() called by info::info(utf8_string, wchar_t) in boost/spirit/home/support/info.hpp to fail, as it calls boost::detail::make_unsigned_imp<wchar_t> which does a static assertion that the template parameter type is_integral or is_enum in boost/type_traits/make_unsigned.hpp

Note that in my parser I am not explicitly using wchar_t nor wstring - in fact I have no need of wchar/wstring support, with standard ASCII text being completely sufficient. (The string types I do explicitly use are std::string, character literals and boost::spirit::qi::ascii)

Example of the issue in compiling the libs/spirit/example/qi/roman.cpp example:

$g++ --version
g++ (GCC) 4.8.2

$g++ -isystem /home/morettr/Downloads/boost_1_55_0/ -o roman.o -c roman.cpp # No defines, no problems.
$g++ -isystem /home/morettr/Downloads/boost_1_55_0/ -o roman.o -c roman.cpp -DBOOST_NO_INTRINSIC_WCHAR_T -DBOOST_NO_CWCHAR -DBOOST_NO_STD_WSTRING

    ^

This was tested with 1.55.0, but as far as I can tell from looking at the code on GitHub?, the problem should still exist for the current development version. Also, it's not Android compiler specific - the example above was done with standard g++ on an x86 Linux box.

Desired outcome: All standard boost::spirit examples (except those which explicitly use wstring/wchar_t types) should compile and run with the "-DBOOST_NO_INTRINSIC_WCHAR_T -DBOOST_NO_CWCHAR -DBOOST_NO_STD_WSTRING" flag suite turned on.
