our code is actually a plug-in (first level) (with own plug-ins - second
level) for and app created with gcc 3.4 + STLport + boost 1.33.1 (boost
version which we would really like to avoid because of limited shared_ptr
API). We just stepped down from the position, where cross-compiler gcc
4.2.4 and boost 1.35.0 was used for the first and second level plugins.
It is actually quite a Frankenstein (one of the second level plugins is gcc
4.2 with STL (not STLport!), but should be on safe side talking pure "C"
with the rest, hopefully) and we decided to step down and reduce the risks
as much as possible and hopefully get rid off some weird bugs (runtime
linker does not unload the first level plugin cleanly, even though it
claims it does so, which is obvious next time the plugin is loaded and
Initially, code was written for BOOST 1.34.1 (with STL, not STLport) and is
widely used and thoroughly tested. And yes, I know I'm talking about very
To go back to issue, I probably don't understand your point. 1.34.1 holds
declaration in header file but no definition of it?? What I'd suspect is a
naming / namespace issue with the functor allocator referenced, but this is
more or less just a guess... :(
Thank you for a fast response,
