#include <boost/construe_cast.hpp>

int main(int, char**) {
    return boost::construe_cast<int>("23");

compiled using gcc 4.5.1, g++-4.5 test.cpp -o test -O3 -I . -I
../library/boost-trunk/ -fno-builtin will generate the following code:

Dump of assembler code for function main:
0x0000000100000e20 <main+0>: push %rbp
0x0000000100000e21 <main+1>: mov $0x17,%eax
0x0000000100000e26 <main+6>: mov %rsp,%rbp
0x0000000100000e29 <main+9>: leaveq
0x0000000100000e2a <main+10>: retq
0x0000000100000e2b <main+11>: nopl 0x0(%rax,%rax,1)

thus as you can see, it's still able to perform the optimization.
