Here is the discussion that I had on the libstdc++ list when I was
trying to understand this issue:
At that time, the Roguewave STL was said to definitely support
allocator::pointer, as was the Dinkumware library though there were
some caveats about that IIRC.
Since then, Ion has written his Boost.Interprocess containers (which
are in boost svn, but not yet in a released version of boost).
At the end of the thread that I link to above, Matt Austern points out
some of the difficulties of implementing allocator::pointer. It boils
down to this: "nobody has spelled out precisely what requirements
my_allocator<T>::pointer must satisfy".
