Running Boost.Test using clang targeting mingw/gcc I am running into a
problem with "exported" classes, which are
'__attribute__((__visibility__("default")))' in clang. Evidently when
clang 'exports' a class it attempts to generate a default copy
constructor and a default assignment operator when no user-defined
functionality is specified, even when no copying or assigning is done
for any instance of that class. This causes it to produce errors for a
number of Boost.Test classes, execution_monitor in particular, using a
member of the non-copyable, non-assignable boost:scoped_ptr type.

Has anyone run into this with Boost.Test or any other Boost library
compiled with clang ? Is this a known issue with clang ?

I reported this on the clang developer's list, although the 'export'
reason for the bug was spotted by a clang developer and not me.

I am curious that this does not show up for you with cygwin, but maybe
this is the cause of some of Beman's problems with clang. This is
compiling clang in non-c++11 mode.
