I am having difficulty with Internal Compiler Errors with MSVC 7.1 on a
project using Boost.Variant. I point you to this thread for details;

The only solution I can come up with thus far which doesn't involve
avoiding debug builds altogether is to use the /Zd option which
"Produces an .obj file or executable (.exe) file containing only global
and external symbol and line-number information (no symbolic debugging
information). Use this option if you want to reduce the size of the .exe
file, or if you don't want to use the debugger's expression evaluator
(requires symbolic information)."

There is currently no support for this option in the MSVC configuration
for BBv2, I'd like to propose that maybe it could be added. The easiest
way would seem to make a third option for the debug-store feature but I
do not know if that is the right way.

Kind regards, Eoin.
