The problem seems to be that the author of iostreams has vanished and the
library is orphaned. (Apologies to Jonathan if this is not the case but I
haven't read anything from him recently.) So nobody probably cares about
IIRC, there are a number of bug fixes on 1.33.1 which are still not merged
to HEAD. I merged some of them on my own to get it compile on Tru64/CXX
again but left it at that.
So we need to decide what to do with the remaining merges, and what will
happen to iostreams in the future, if Jonathan doesn't show up again.
