This should be fixed now in develop; will merge to master if Marshall gives
me permission.

(As a side note, Clang 3.8/3.9 don't quite work with libstdc++ 4.8 because
of the missing ::gets in C++14 mode, but boost/config.hpp contains a
workaround for that, as long as you include it before f.ex. <string>.)
