Hi Andrew,
    I don't believe that to be the case as I am certainly using > gcc 5.1
with teh later ABI, incidentally if I tell gcc to use the old style ABI I
get errors linking against  boost, hence my "assumption" was perhaps the
ODB libs had not been compiled with the latter ABI or gcc defaults.

Happy to be proved wrong, but I am using:

gcc (Ubuntu 5.3.1-14ubuntu2) 5.3.1 20160413

This is free software; see the source for copying conditions.  There is NO
