Probably Luke can help you with this. I cannot.

You ask for an alternative, and there is one within Boost. You might
look at Boost.Geometry, which has traits designed differently so maybe
this problem will not occur. It is not tested in CodeWarrior though.

Sources are still here
and at our SVN.

It has the union for polygons with holes.
