Hi Barend, and thanks for the quick reply.

Oh. That makes sense, and interests me as well, because I'm currently
deciding, where to use projections, and where the Andoyer/Vincenty distance
will suffice.

I hope it will be 1.50. Until then hope that Trunk will work fine for you.

In that case I'm thinking of taking a snapshot of the boost/geometry
directory from trunk, and adding it to my projects' include dirs before
boost-1.48 itself. An reason this shouldn't work or suggestions for a
better solution?
