feel free to look into it:
* check out trunk
* go to libs/lockfree/tests
* change the files: move the inclusion of boost/test/unit_test.hpp to
the front of the file (or apply attached patch)
* compile the testsuite
* get a deeper understanding of the situation
i'm not planning to dig deeper into these libraries, myself
good luck, tim
