Oops. That would explain the failures.

I thought you mentioned that you might be releasing a new version in one of
the threads recently, and when I went to Sourceforge, I was sure it said Jan
2007 as the release date, so I figured that you'd got the new 1.6.4 out.

I am thoroughly confused, since the most recent download on sourceforge is
dated last October. My include paths even say g:/boost/spirit-1.6.4, which is
where I thought I'd unpacked it. Bizarrely, I can't find any version of spirit
unpacked on that drive. I must be going mad, sorry for the noise. I'll sort it
out next week.
