I do not know boost/units/scaled_base_unit.hpp, but the migration path
is to use the '||' operator directly rather than 'ice_or' in the code.
The only reason for the icexxx constructs were for ancient compilers
which couldn't handle the equivalent operators directly but Boost no
longer tests/supports those compilers.
