I may be missing something, but I don't quite understand how
boost::unit_test::decorator::enable_if could clash with
boost::enable_if. I don't find any global using declarations that
could bring boost::unit_test::decorator::enable_if into boost::, but
maybe I missed it. There is one using directive in
exception_safety_tester::exception_safety_tester() though, where
lexical_cast it invoked, but it should not affect iterator_range.
Maybe there's a compiler problem involved?

Anyway, just to compile things on my end I used the attached patch to
work around the problem.
