Using the hardware USART with BoostC and a PIC

This post looks at what is needed to get a serial connectiong working with BoostC using a PIC with a hardware USART. A later post will cover the BoostC software implementation, when I have finished figuring it out. By the end of this post there will be a PIC uC talking to Hyperterminal on the PC using less than 50 lines of code.
