The MIPSpro problems are due to a hickup in is_base_and_derived.hpp.
Here is the relevant *preprocessed* piece of code:

template <typename B, typename D>
struct bd_helper
    template <typename T>
    static type_traits::yes_type check(D const volatile *, T);
    static type_traits::no_type check(B const volatile *, int);

template<typename B, typename D>
struct is_base_and_derived_impl2
    struct Host
        operator B const volatile *() const;
        operator D const volatile *();

    static const bool value = sizeof(bd_helper<B,D>:: check(Host(), 0)) ==


And here is the error:

cc-1108 CC: ERROR File =
/u1/rwgrosse/rc_1_30_0/boost/boost/type_traits/is_base_and_derived.hpp, Line =
  The indicated expression must have pointer-to-function type.

      static const bool value = sizeof(bd_helper<B,D> ::check(Host(), 0)) ==


- Replacing "sizeof(bd_helper<B,D> ::check(Host(), 0))" by "sizeof(int)"
  leads to successful compilation.

- Removing the space before ::check doesn't make a difference.

MIPSpro is based on EDG 238. Are there known issues with "operator T"?
Ideas for a workaround are highly appreciated.
