Michel Morin explains the situation here:!msg/boost-list/D_sArzFkXEQ/CI07X_6bEqEJ

Compile-time const rvalue detection in Foreach in the absence of C++0x
rvalue references relies on compiler bugs. Gcc 4.6 fixes the bug. So
either you compile with -std=gnu++0x and get rvalue references, or else
you fall back on runtime const rvalue detection. In the latter case, you
have to worry about the is_noncopyable business.

So, you should specialize boost::foreach::is_noncopyable as Michel
suggests. Another option would be to make your type non-copyable by
inheriting from boost::noncopyable. Boost.Foreach is savvy to that.
