You are right, equals for multi* is not yet there. I planned to put a
new version there this weekend, anyway, so will take care that it is

Intersections are enhanced in that new version. However, they should
still be oriented clockwise in this version (the definitions from your
first samples are counter-clockwise (so it was useful them being there
:-) ).

Is GGL running fine using CodeWarrior?

By the way, GGL is renamed to Boost.Geometry, so you will have to rename
ggl:: to boost::geometry or create an alias.
