GCC has reported bugs with precompiled headers and anonymous
namespaces. However, I didn't request precompiled headers, and I'm
not even sure that g++ 3.3 (which I used, though the Apple variant)
has them.

See gcc bug 10591 (which specifically mentions boost) for 3.4. One
comment suggests it works in 4.0.0, but basically the same bug is also
reported againt 4.0 (21179).

There seems to be considerable uncertainty about the best way to fix
the bug, and, probably as a result, not much sign of it being worked


P.S. Among the problems with the use of -m that I reported earlier is
that erroneous duplicate symbols are likely to be missed, by the
compiler because -m says let it pass, and by you because there may be
a blizzard of bogus duplicate warnings. Presumably most of the other
hazards of -m involve cases in which the "duplicate" symbols have
different definitions. Since the symbols are being generated from the
same include file in each compilation unit in my case (using boost
test macros), that's not such a concern here.
