My TU is

#include <boost/test/impl/unit_test_parameters.ipp>

"included" means here a single header that includes whole implementation of
Boost.Test component. For example

No idea. Maybe you somehow modified sources? Or maybe compiler somehow peaks
into implementation (I expirienced something similar with sunpro compiler).
Though I don't know how is it possible.

I don't even know where to look for it.

IT'S NOT. Why are you so sure it's my problem?


P.S. I do have an access to borland 5.6.4. And I do not have any problems
compiling with it.
