Clang and OSX support

Thanks to Pyry Jahkola (pyrtsa) we start the new year with an exciting new platform support. He submitted a bunch of patches (see his pull request) that allows us to build HPX on OSX with clang! So far he was able to build with a vanilla version of clang. The tests and examples run just fine.

This pull request highlights once again that we can keep our promise to deliver wide platform support. As with the Android support reported last year (HPX on Android), the changes to the core of HPX are very minimal and mostly address some deficiencies of the platforms compiler.
Additionally, the support of Clang outlines our commitment to standard C++ and enables a new variety of different static code analysis to further improve our code base. Once again, thanks pyrtsa!

P.S.: A happy and successful year to everyone!
