Is it possible to use boost::shared_ptr<> without RTTI being enabled? I'm
trying to port some code to the Sharp Zaurus, and its GUI libraries are all
compiled with the G++ flags -fno-exceptions -fno-rtti. Boost seems to
support the former flag just fine, but has problems with the latter:

What is the typeid call in the get_deleter functions doing? Is there any
way to work around or disable this?
