The problem is that the web page I referenced in my previous post was
suggesting replacing the tuple_basic_no_partial_spec.hpp file, where the
"static" keyword was added for MSVC++.

The fun is that this file is meant for compilers that do not support
partial template specializations. MS VC++7.1 supports PTS, so it is the
other file: tuple_basic.hpp that needs to be checked.

I've made ignore static by doing this:

namespace {
#if (defined(BOOST_MSVC) && BOOST_MSVC <= 1310) ||
(defined(__DECCXX_VER) && __DECCXX_VER <= 60590031)
  detail::swallow_assign ignore;

instead of:

namespace {
  detail::swallow_assign ignore;

Please note the 1310 value. It means MSVC++7.1.

The other file that you suggested checking (placeholders.hpp) needed the
value 1300 to be changed to 1310 (for MSVC++7.1 to be covered) so that
all _1, _2, ... variables are made static.

Now, after hacking these two files, all is OK.

Thank you very much for your time,
