The error is produced by trying to use enable_if which is not defined,
probably because the
identification of the compiler sets BOOST_NO_SFINAE to 1 and that skips the
definition (My guess.)

  template <class Cond, class T = detail::enable_if_default_T>
  struct enable_if : enable_if_does_not_work_on_this_compiler<T>
  { };

  I was using boost 1.33.1 as suggested by the author of the software, but
have also tried 1.39.0
and neither compiles.

The documentation of 1.33.1 file index.htm, in the FIRST page of that

"Supported Compilers" includes Borland C++ 5.6.4 on Windows. Which is older
than my Borland C++ 5.82
 for Win32. I don't think v 5.6.4 supports SFINAE either.
