Not if you want to define the function object in a local scope.

Note a lot of C++03 compilers provide typeof which is basically the same
thing, and it can be implemented on MSVC exploiting a bug.

So you can write
BOOST_AUTO(f, ref(sum) += factor * _1);

and it's pretty portable.

Actually, Boost.Phoenix uses Proto, which itself requires native support
of Boost.Typeof.
