Are you using the Spirit version, which is contained in the Boost CVS? If
yes, then this is the reason for your problem. Spirit was updated to use the
new IA's a while ago, but the new code is in the Spirit CVS only (still). It
has to be merged to the Boost CVS for the next Boost release, which BTW will
coincide with a new Spirit V1.8.0 release.

So for now, please check out Spirit from it's CVS and put it in your include
path somewhere before the Boost root. This should help, if not, please post
a message on the Spirit list, so others might help too.
