Should work fine - I take it you've simplified that code?

This one (GCC 2.95) fails simply because
std::string::clear() is missing in libstdc++-v2, you must use
s.erase(s.begin(), s.end())

For GCC 3.4.x the debug mode reports this:
error: attempt to copy-construct an iterator from a singular iterator.

Are you sure you're passing l.end(), or is that a simplification?

Loads of iterators in token_iterator_test.cpp are singular, so when
passed to BOOST_CHECK_EQUAL_COLLECTIONS (which takes it's args by value)
a singular iterator is copied - which is illegal

Also, why is test_wide() commented out for GCC (without STLPort) ?
I thought the point of the \nnn octal escapes I worked out was that GCC
won't accept the raw characters, but is happy with the escapes?
Did that not work? Why should it work with STLPort, it's the compiler
that rejects those chars, not the stdlib, isn't it?
And it wasn't all versions of GCC that were affected, was it?
