We've had this problem before. We found out that the IDE has a different
preset settings than the command line compiler. The default compiler options
are different. (Actually, the IDE invokes the compiler with options that override
the "stock" default settings.) If the -Ve flag is set to your build, the compiler
reports an "internal compiler error". -Ve is the setting for the "zero-length
empty base class" setting. It should be on by default, but it shouldn't be
causing any internal errors.

We get ICE with Spirit when -Ve is set.
I hope someone has a workaround here.

Hope this helps.
