I don't see how we can rewrite the archive class at this late stage...


    class D : public T { \
    public: \
        explicit D(const T t) : T(t){} \
        D() : T() {} \
    }; \

is sufficient to get MPI compiling with sun's compiler on Linux (this is on
Trunk... I assume that both libraries have unmerged fixes awaiting for the
release branch... as that looks hopelessly broken at present?).

I still haven't been able to run MPI's regression tests though due to linker
invocation errors:
CC: Warning: Option -Wl,--export-dynamic passed to ld, if ld is invoked,
ignored otherwise
/home/john/SunStudio/sunstudio12.1/prod/lib/ld: unrecognized option
/home/john/SunStudio/sunstudio12.1/prod/lib/ld: use the --help option for
usage information

But maybe this gives us a way forward for *this* release? Perhaps with the
proviso that Boost.Serialization is allowed to move forward and make
breaking changes to it's implementation for the next release?

Just my 2c worth... John.
