I just grabbed the latest code from the RC_1_30_0 branch, and I got a
compile failure when building the Boost.Filesystem library with the
MIPSpro Compilers (

cc-1108 CC: ERROR File =
Line = 106
   The indicated expression must have pointer-to-function type.

...failed mipspro-C++-action

Is there a recommended procedure I can follow for tracking this down and
submitting a patch? For example, I was considering running the
regression tests for the MIPSpro Compilers. Would that be helpful, or is
someone on the Boost team on top of this already?
