This was a bug in exception/object_hex_dump.hpp because it used
unqualified size_t without #including <stdlib.h>. The use of size_t is
now qualified, see trunk revision 57668.

I suspect however that we would have had the same issue even if
object_hex_dump.hpp did #include <stdlib.h>. Isn't it too risky for
mpl to define its own size_t?
