TBB tuple doesn't compile with Xcode 4.4 (clang 4.0)

After upgrading to the latest Xcode 4.4 which has clang 4.0 (based on llvm 3.1), the tbb/compat/tuple header fails to compile.

$ clang --version

Apple clang version 4.0 (tags/Apple/clang-421.0.60) (based on LLVM 3.1svn)

Target: x86_64-apple-darwin11.4.0

Thread model: posix

$ make compiler=clang arch=intel64 test

Apparently the compiler has a problem with the call to the tuple::get() instance method. It's not clear why; this code compiles with every other compiler I've tried.

I was able to work around the problem by replacing the call to tuple::get() with a call to internal::get_helper::get() (which is how tuple::get() is itself implemented). If anyone can come up with a cleaner workaround I'd be happy to hear it.

Here's the patch:

diff --git a/tbb40_20120613oss/include/tbb/compat/tuple b/tbb40_20120613oss/include/tbb/compat/tuple

Thank you for a report, We have the issue on both Lion and Mountain Lion using August command line tools. It looks like a compiler bug.:) Could you submit a patch via to include it to tbb update in case we do not find a better solution? Thanks, Vladimir
