How odd. I would have expected it to be ambiguous at the call to bind, but it
takes the const version over the non-const version.

Well, you're stuck casting the member function pointer to the right type:

       boost::function1<Node &, size_t> get_node =
                boost::bind((Node& (FEM::*)(FEM::size_type))&FEM::node,
                            boost::ref(fem), _1);

Ah, the beauty of nesting bind() expressions. Start with the outer call
(set_conc), and work your way inward by writing the parameters to it. Here's
the final solution (with ugly casting hack):

        boost::function2<void, size_t, double> all_in_one =
                      boost::bind((Node& (FEM::*)(FEM::size_type))&FEM::node,
