Hi - Sorry, I was too vague (due to my lack of full understanding of the
problem. I'm just coming up to speed on existing code using 1_33_1.

The problem with gcc on aix is not anything to do with Boost; evidently,
there are problems building our application on aix using gcc, which is not
the native compiler for aix.

Currently, we build on aix using xlC (aka, Visual Age C++), on Linux
using gcc, and Windows using MSVC. This is why we like Boost so much. :)

Unfortunately, I still can't get filesystem to build on aix. :(
The errors I get are too complicated for my simple mind. I guess I should
post the problem on boost_users rather than here for that.

Sorry for the confusion.
