That's beyond me...

David, I still think it is not ideal that Boost.Python doesn't work out-of-the
box under SuSE 9.x. What do you think about this plan:

First we verify that the unpatched gcc's don't choke on the added reference. If
that works out we add the reference under a condition like this (reformulated

#if defined(__linux__) && defined(__GNUC__) && __GNUC__ == 3 && __GNUC_MINOR__
== 3 && (__GNUC_PATCHLEVEL__ == 1 || __GNUC_PATCHLEVEL__ == 3) 

Would that be acceptable? I could test with the gcc versions under question
under RedHat.
