I appreciate Pavel's taking the time to identify the problem, but I'm
reluctant to commit his fix. The problem is not specific to
BOOST_MEM_FN_ENABLE_FASTCALL; any Boost macro that affects code (and nearly
all of them do) can cause a similar error when it's being inconsistently
defined in one file and not in another, or in the middle of the includes, as
in this case. Macros should be defined project-wide, with -D or in the
project settings.

I will, however, definitely mention this in the bind/mem_fn documentation.
Several times. In bold. :-)
