[Dune] FW: Problems with installation of DUNE core modules (in particular, with dune-grid-howto)

Hi Andrea, dear all,

I had a look into the example, the problem is that the current
implementation of persistentmap does improperly use the allocator of
the value_type instead of the proper allocator the internal data
structure. The linux gcc does allow this usage, in general you have to
use a rebind.

I fix this in the trunk, but I assume you are using 2.1.0. Could you
please test the attached patch with your code.
