<sstream> is quite a new header in libstdc++ (added in April 2000, so e.g.
libstdc++ 2.95.x does not have it at all) and is incomplete.
As g++ 3.0 has a completely new implementation of this anyway, I'm just
attaching a quick hack which IMHO should work (you can apply the patch
in /usr/include/g++-3/ to test it out).
The fix is in 2.96-98.
Fixed in gcc-3.2, gcc-3.3, gcc-3.4.
