Just started experimenting with the serialization library. I started by
writing a small example very much like that shown in the tutorial. I created
a simple class to serialize containing two unsigned int vars and an
std::string This is close to what I would need to do once I move beyond
familiarizing myself with the use of the library.

When I compile I get errors in the boost code:

s-test.h:49: instantiated from here
/usr/include/boost/archive/detail/oserializer.hpp:567: error: invalid
application of 'sizeof' to incomplete
type 'boost::STATIC_ASSERTION_FAILURE<false>'
make: *** [stest] Error 1

When I look at boost static assert I find this:

   typedef ::boost::static_assert_test<\
      sizeof(::boost::STATIC_ASSERTION_FAILURE< (bool)( B ) >)>\
         BOOST_JOIN(boost_static_assert_typedef_, __LINE__)

Which I believe is macro expansion sizeof that is being complained about.

I'm using boost 1_35_0 (release tarball), gcc 4.1.2, Fedora 7.

Looking for hints as to where to go from here.
