| "/home/boost/boost-regress/boost/libs/filesystem/test/operations_test.cpp"
| operations_test / gcc2953
| [snip]
| Compiler output:
| [snip]
| /opt/gcc2/bin//g++ -c -Wall -ftemplate-depth-100 -g -O0
| -fno-inline -I"../libs/filesystem/test" -I

| "../libs/filesystem/test/bin/operations_test.test/gcc2953/debug/runtime-link-dynamic/operations_test.o"
| "/home/boost/boost-regress/boost/libs/filesystem/test/operations_test.cpp"

I must admit I'm neither familiar with Boost's regression testsuite,
so I would need your help to see what you don't understand.

I'm not sure this is the right to discuss GCC initernals. But since
you asked: GCC mainly uses two data structures

   1) "tree" for anything that has to do with front-ends; i.e. source
       programs are parsed and represented as trees.

    2) "RTL" for middle-end and back-ends. Trees are translated from

The routine dump_expr mentioned in the "sorry message" only deals with
trees ("static_cast_expr" is an instance of tree). What is happening
is that, somehow, that routine has been called to dump a static_cast
