I tried your example program with both 1.55 and 1.54 and I could not get
it to compile. Maybe it is my setup, and will try again.

It is true, however, that for spherical_equatorial your program should
work, but it doesn't (it was indeed working with 1.55).
I have spotted the problem, and I am working towards a solution.

take it from there.
Here is the link for the trac system: https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/
at the top of the page. This will let you create a new ticket.

Best,
