I found the problem. SVN refuses to correctly update the directory I
used to build the zip. Even cleanup has no effect, so I will delete
the whole stuff and checkout again.
There are actually 2 important files missing, so I had no other choice
than to upload the correct version again. For all who downloaded from
the vault, sorry about it, you will need to download again (the
sandbox is ok though).

This line is not even needed as all mpl types are qualified inside the
library with ::boost::mpl so I just removed the line. This problem is
there since at least the 1.20 and went unnoticed.
Sadly, some of the tutorials fail to fully qualify the mpl types, so I
updated them too.

Both versions, sandbox and vault should now be up to date and with
these 2 problems solved.
