I'm not sure I understood what you're trying to do but the compiler
basically says that it can't construct intrusive_ptr from two arguments.
You seem to have confused intrusive_ptr with std::pair. Furthermore, it
seems odd to have intrusive_ptr on std::pair because std::pair doesn't
provide reference counting. You probably ether need shared_ptr instead
of intrusive_ptr or:

   typedef std::pair<
> ProtocolLibEnginePair;

PS: And this thread is probably better suited for users' list.
