There's a problem with noncopyable and boost::unit_test::singleton in Intel
13 for Linux in C++11 compatibility mode that's rippling through many
Boost libs. To list a few:
The error messages go like
protected function "boost::noncopyable_::noncopyable::noncopyable()"
[...] is not accessible through a "boost::noncopyable_::noncopyable" pointer
protected function "boost::unit_test::singleton<Derived>::singleton()"
[...] is not accessible through a
which are manifestations of the following compiler bug:
The report also indicates a simple workaround consisting of
BOOST_CONSTEXPR noncopyable() = default;
(seemingly, this would also fix boost::unit_test::singleton
Maybe the maintainer of boost:noncopyable can try a fix for
ICC 13 along these lines? This can potentially clear a ton
of yellow cells. I'd volunteer a pull request but alas
I don't have local access to that compiler.
