Right, using MSVC I get a lot less. But still there is. The basic thing is:

../../../../../../..\boost/geometry/algorithms/correct.hpp(173) : error
: cannot convert parameter 1 from 'QRing *' to 'QRing *&'

This is somehow related to traits like this:
template <> struct tag<QRing*>

We're discussing internally how to get on with things like this. Bruno
has made a suggestion for an elegant solution (on the pointer-to-point
related to const, etc), which I will try this weekend. That might change
(and simplify) your approach too, so if you don't mind I will not spend
too much on these issues...

Regards, Barend
