This is a Boost.predef problem. I am using predef in my jamfile to say
that if a test uses gcc 4.3 or higher and the QNX OS is not being used,
add the =std=c++0x option to the compilation of a VMD test. Even though
I can clearly see in the predef tests for your setup that gcc is not
being used as the compiler it is still acting as if gcc 4.3 or higher is
being used for the VMD tests.
I will create a separate message about the failure of predef to work
properly here, and hopefully the predef author will look into this problem.
As an aside the configuration which Boost VMD uses to determine whether
a compiler supports variadic macros or not has always specified that for
the Oracle C++ ( formerly Sun C++ ) compiler variadic macros are not
supported. I need to update this based on the version of Oracle C++
being used as I believe that for Oracle C++ 12.3 and 12.4 variadic
macros may be supported. You can override what the configuration file
determines by adding -DBOOST_PP_VARIADICS=1 to your command line for the
VMD tests if you know that your setup supports variadic macros. VMD
tests will fail without compiler variadic macro support.
