        I have been using it for a long while now without any troubles.
Ummm...well, with very very few troubles. :) Seriously, the only
thing that is a problem is that despite a really nicely conforming
compiler (MIPSpro 7.30), they still haven't put stddef.h into cstddef
(and so on), so a couple of the include statements need to be changed.
Other than that, they have always worked without any problems, and I
have used a number of the libraries. You also need to make sure
you compile with -LANG:std (not the default, for whatever reason).
I also use the SGI STL version 3.2 as I have had multiple problems
with the concept checking under the 3.3 version.
