Thanks for the info. I looked thru some boost headers and noticed some code
like: (std:min)(x, y)

On a whim, I added this to my code and BINGO, everything compiles fine. I
am curious why this fixed it though? Is it because the preprocessor mangled
the "min" before the compiler saw it? And the parenthesis, in effect,
prevent the preprocessor from expanding the macro?
