I thought I gave you an answer in my previous posting?!

1) My primary suggestion is to replace all occurrences of v_array by
std::vector (see above).

2) If (1) fails, e.g. because you have no editing rights to the
corresponding sources, you should consider to create your own
v_array.hpp file based on the code given in the link provided above.

But let me warn you: If your most recent boost version was 1.26 and
if you are going to switch to 1.37, you might get into different trouble
than just due to the missing v_array type: Class interfaces might have
slightly changed or your compiler is no longer supported...

Good luck,

Daniel Krügler
