ok. So, you mean the codewarrior compiler that was previously used for the
regression must have been linked statically to the C++ lib, while the new
one is linked dynamically, and thus locale-disabled ?

I come to think, wouldn't it be better if the no-locale situation was
implemented by having a fake 'locale' object and empty related functions ?
(allows writing locale-enabled code, and the compiler just ignores it)

in anycase, the lines causing the error here were the only ones I had left
out of #ifndef BOOST_NO_STD_LOCALE blocks, so adding such #ifndef should
fix the failure, with or without locales enabled in the codewarrior being
used. I'll try that..
