The root of this problem is a surprise for me. Actually to include
<memory> Sun C++ searches file named memory.SUNWCCh. This file is a
symbolic link to "memory". Please don't ask me to explain the rationale
of this "feature" :-) So you can create symbolic links in the tr1
folder like memory.SUNWCCh -> memory. It should help. Meanwhile, I will
try to persuade my co-workers to implement command line option to turn off
this feature.
