Thanks. After playing around a little I enountered another problem. It seems
serialization13 is not designed to build with boost-1.30.2? I got complaints
about iterator_adaptor related header file not found (sorry, I lost the exact
message), so I'm guessing serialization13 is only meant to work with an
unreleased boost version?
