I am rebuilding a library that was last compiled a year ago using an
earlier version of boost and an earlier version of Xcode (2.4) and an
earlier version of Mac OS X (10.4).

I downloaded boost_1_35_0 distro for my Mac and built it using the
standard configuration and build procedures. That seemed to go OK. I
am compiling C++ source code that formerly compiled, without errors or
warnings, but now reports the following errors in many files:

"error: 'snprintf' is not a member of 'std'"

And, the offending line is the following from the c++locale.h file
(the error is reported on the line referencing snprintf):

#ifdef _GLIBCXX_USE_C99
       const int __ret = std::snprintf(__out, __size, __fmt, __prec,
       const int __ret = std::sprintf(__out, __fmt, __prec, __v);

Does anyone know the source of this problem. There is absolutely no
changes in my source that is being compiled.

I am dual posting this on both the boost-users and the Mac Xcode lists
because I am not sure which is the more appropriate forum.
