I began writing specific workarounds only after 1.30.2 was released. try
the CVS, it has the gcc-2.95.x workarounds, let me know if anything goes
wrong. (note the test format_test3 fail with gcc-2.95, due to the
absence of a few stream manipulators. nothing important at all)

no, it's just gcc-2.95.x 's stdlib is very different from the standard,
regarding streams. and so I hadn't done anything for it until recently.
(though, boost::format was compatible with gcc-2.95 with STLport since

try the "regression tests" links on
