after some digging the difference between 3.4 and 3.5 that makes 3.5
build is that the gbuild modules are additionally built with -std=c++0x
on 3.5 (only the dmake ones are built with that on 3.4).

Seems that a recent boost + recent gcc causes this problem when an
boost::unordered_map is used as a baseclass for something, but asking
gcc to use -std=c++0x mode makes gcc do the right thing.

Whether its a bug in gcc or boost I'm unsure really. But it wouldn't
happen with an older boost like the builtin one, and I think using the
attached patch would allow people to build 3.4 with bleeding edge
external boost and gcc without hacking loads of copy-constructors
