Compilation error with clang (result_of problem?)

Alexandre Hamez-2

        Consider the following code ( modified):

#include <string>
#include <boost/spirit/include/phoenix_operator.hpp>
#include <boost/spirit/include/qi.hpp>

namespace ascii = boost::spirit::ascii;
namespace qi = boost::spirit::qi;
namespace spirit = boost::spirit;

template <typename Iterator>
struct parser
  : qi::grammar<Iterator, void(), qi::locals<std::string>, ascii::space_type>
  qi::rule<Iterator, void(), qi::locals<std::string>, ascii::space_type> r_xml;
  qi::rule<Iterator, std::string(), ascii::space_type> r_start;
  qi::rule<Iterator, void(std::string), ascii::space_type>  r_end;

    : parser::base_type(r_xml)
    using ascii::char_;
    using ascii::string;
    using qi::lexeme;
    using qi::lit;
    using namespace qi::labels;

    r_start %= '<' >> !lit('/') >> lexeme[+(char_ - '>')] >> '>';
    r_end = "</" >> string(_r1) >> '>';
    r_xml = r_start[_a = _1] >> r_end(_a);

int main()
  const std::string storage("<foo></foo>");
  std::string::const_iterator iter = storage.begin();
  const std::string::const_iterator end = storage.end();
  const bool r = qi::phrase_parse(iter, end, parser<std::string::const_iterator>(), ascii::space);
  return !(r && iter == end);

        When I try to compile this code with clang 4.1 (Apple clang version 4.1 (tags/Apple/clang-421.11.66) (based on LLVM 3.1svn)) and Boost 1.52, it fails with the message:

/opt/local/include/boost/spirit/home/qi/auxiliary/lazy.hpp:96:80: error: no type named 'type' in
      boost::spirit::char_encoding::ascii>>>, boost::spirit::attribute<1>, boost::fusion::void_, boost::fusion::void_, boost::fusion::void_,
      boost::fusion::void_, boost::fusion::void_, boost::fusion::void_, boost::fusion::void_, boost::fusion::void_>>> (boost::spirit::unused_type,
      boost::spirit::context<boost::fusion::cons<boost::spirit::unused_type &, boost::fusion::cons<std::__1::basic_string<char>, boost::fusion::nil>>,
                    typename boost::result_of<Function(unused_type, Context)>::type

        When I saw this message, I thought of the note related to the Boost 1.52 revision ( which warns about the change of boost::result_of. Thus, I tried with Boost 1.51, but it also fails, though with a different error message (/usr/bin/../lib/c++/v1/list:212:9: error: field has incomplete type 'boost::spirit::info').
        Also, this problem seems related to the inherited attribute passed to the r_end rule. Whenever I remove anything related to this attribute, it compiles.
        Finally, I should notice that it compiles with g++ 4.7.
        So, is this a problem with Spirit or clang? And, whatever causes the problem, is there any possible workaround (keeping the inherited attribute)?
