Nothing much has changed in the v1 codebase in many months, and v2 of
course works. All tests are building and running fine for me with both vc6
and vc7 (and lots of other compilers). My guess is that one of the other
Boost libraries used by Boost.Python is having some interaction with the
platform SDK. You might try searching the Boost User list for references to
the platform SDK; I seem to remember seeing some reports of this problem
this past week.

Ah, yes, and here's a new page on the Wiki:

Rene, did you ever get a chance to look at this problem?
