You can't share any structure that contains raw pointers, because shared
memory is mapped in different address in each process. So you need to
replace every member with boost.interprocess alternatives. And if those
structures are filled by GNu Scientifice Library, pointers would point
to process-local memory (malloc-heap) and that memory isn't shareable
with other processes.
