Looks like std::cout was unable to open up a stream?

The only way I can get no output (as in your vc7.1 case) is if
libs/shared_ptr is an empty directory (Note that listing for "shared_ptr"
lists everything used by that lib, including all the testing code, use
"bcp --list shared_ptr.hpp" if you just want the header's dependencies).
I've just built and tested with Borland, VC7.1, Intel8, and cygwin and
they're all working OK for me (with the current release version).
