That solution does seem fine. Would someone have an example of a
<cwhatever> include file using the "usual trick?" I would really like
to get boost going with the native IRIX compiler and this would help
getting started.

Can someone name an implementation that is not broken according to the
standards implied in this sentence? My most frustrating experience as
new-comer to C++ is that there does not seem to be such a thing at
The IRIX compiler is based on the EDG frontend. Doesn't this have a
very good reputation? It seems a bit unfair to disqualify the IRIX
compiler as a broken implementation only because the <cwhatever> files
are missing.
