For me, it would be sufficient to get the right tips in what direction
to proceed with BCC. Before someone makes great effort to do
the porting, probably there is a more generic answer.

This cannot be the reason for boost/operators.hpp failing in the
context of boost/rational.hpp, since that does not use template
*value* parameters at all. Do we need
so that there are no template default parameters in boost/operators.hpp
at all?

After we're sure what the real reason is, we can work around
appropriately. It would be good to know what has to be done
to boost/rational.hpp for a start; this might be simpler.

There are template *type* parameters with defaults in the
distribution functions, do they pose that problem?
