I'll just note that an Internal Compiler Error is always a bug in the
compiler, by definition.  It may be true that boost exposed it, but
boost is not the cause of the compiler bug.  It would be helpful if
you provided more details for the gcc folks.

Absolutely, 1.46 is an option.  That's why I suggested it.  Debian has
been releasing with at least two boost versions for a while now.  The
less-up-to-date version is often dictated by needs of other packages,
such as libreoffice.

The upstream bug reports a "one-liner" fix of building with "-std=c++0x".  
Does that work for Debian?
