The up to date CGAL 4.7-3 package relies on a struct that has been deprecated in Boost 1.60 -- type_traits 'ice_and'.

Attempting to compile the CGAL triangulated surface mesh segmentation examples (e.g., listed in the documentation results in compilation errors:

/usr/include/CGAL/internal/Surface_mesh_segmentation/AABB_traits.h:49:5: error: ‘ice_and’ is not a member of boost::type_traits’
/usr/include/CGAL/internal/Surface_mesh_segmentation/AABB_traits.h:49:5: error: ‘ice_and’ is not a member of ‘boost::type_traits’

Possible fixes:
* (Ideal fix:) Apply the small upstream patch from and re-package.
* Impose a version lock < Boost 1.60 for CGAL until 4.8. (I do not know the release timeline for 4.8.)

Additional info:
* CGAL 4.7-3
* Boost 1.60.0-2

Steps to reproduce:
* Install recent CGAL and Boost.
* Compile attached test program.

This task depends upon
