OK.  The problem is less severe than I first feared.  I have managed
to kill most of the error messages by adding "typename" keywords,
changing templates like the following

  template <class T> bool operator==(const SeqBase<T>::iterator& left, 
				     const SeqBase<T>::iterator& right);


  template <class T> bool operator==(const typename SeqBase<T>::iterator& left, 
				     const typename SeqBase<T>::iterator& right);

I'm still trying to figure out what to do about
random_access_iterator, apparently a non-standard STL class that can
be replaced somehow with std::iterator.

Also: the code includes the deprecated <strstream> header.  At the
moment, this only elicits a warning that I'm ignoring.

Ah, I didn't notice that.  I thought you were relying on the fact that
SGI "cc" (like gcc) will detect the language based on the input file
extension (.c or .cxx, etc).  I was actually rather surprised to learn
that SGI's compiler does that.

The messages about "cout" were my own fault (blush) -- they came from
the code I was trying to weave.

Guess again.  :-(  The MIPS C++ compiler is named "CC"; but yes, you
need -LANG:std to get something closer to current standards.  At least
with MIPSpro 7.30 compilers (which, admittedly are a few years old).

Uh, oh.  What about inline( ... type_converters = converters.blitz ...)?
