I don't have the compiler, but my guess is it's probably actually confused
on the line:

typedef size_t type;

A simple workaround to try could be to change the typedef to:

typedef mpl::size_t<N> type;

If that fix works, I'd be surprised if such a change would break any other
compilers. This is all just a guess, though.
