I have been attempting to reduce the size of the test case.  It is
currently down to about 1MB, produced by compiling only
boost/python/converter/registry.hpp.  I'm not sufficiently familiar with
Boost.Python's internals to shrink it down any farther.

The error was:
In file included from
/usr/include/boost/python/converter/rvalue_from_python_data.hpp: At
global scope:
internal compiler error: Segmentation fault

I went ahead and submitted a bug report, but if you know a way to trim
down that case, the GCC maintainers would probably appreciate it.
