What about this situation:

1. I think GCC 3.0 adds the <sstream> header,
2. Which the previous versions (2.x) didn't have,
3. Except for the very last sub-version of 2.x,
4. But there's no way to distinguish that last 2.x sub-version,
5. So you can't check if you have the 2.x <sstream> except by choking.

If we can't find a way to distinguish between the last sub-version of GCC
2.x and the ones before it, maybe we could just "screw" the users of that
last sub-version. We'll only #define BOOST_NO_SSTREAM for versions of GCC
less than 3, without trying that last sub-version of 2.x. Users of that
oddball version can live without Boost usage of <sstream> or edit
<boost/config.hpp> themselves. Is that oddball version only a month or so
old, maybe it isn't too late to just go up to GCC 3?
