we are trying to use the boost.thread libraries on an IBM Aix
platform, but we are not able to compile!

Error messages seem so be due to template instantiations, maybe of
nested or member templates.

We tried to instaniate all the mentioned templates manually, but the
list becomes to long.

Is there any chance to use the boost.thread with the xlC compiler?

Below I'll give the command line we used for compilation and one of
the error messages.

Thanks a lot for any advice!

Command line for compiler:

/usr/vacpp/bin/xlC_r \
-qrtti \
-Iboost/boost_1_27_0 \
e \
-lboost_thread \

One typical error message:

"boost/boost_1_27_0/boost/type_traits/composite_traits.hpp", line
208.40: 1540-0062 (S) The incomplete class "is_pointer_helper<void (*)
